The Sacrament of Reconciliation and Penance
“And all this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and given us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting their trespasses against them and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ, as if God were appealing through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God." (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).
Confession times are available from 4 pm - 4:50 pm before Saturday Vigil Mass, or by appointment.
To make an appointment, please contact the office at 515-271-4747 during office hours or 515-505-6847 after office hours.
May the Lord who has called us to be perfect accept our sincere and penitent hearts.
“Those, on the other hand, who recognize that they are weak and sinful entrust themselves to God and obtain from him grace and forgiveness. It is precisely this message that must be transmitted: what counts most is to make people understand that in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, whatever the sin committed, if it is humbly recognized and the person involved turns with trust to the priest-confessor, he or she never fails to experience the soothing joy of God's forgiveness.” - Pope Benedict XVI
