"Be Reconciled to God and to One Another"
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.
-2 Corinthians 5:17-20
Come and join your sisters and brothers and be reconciled to God and to one another at one of the following Penance Services to prepare to celebrate the joy of the Birth of the Messiah at Christmas.
