Pardon & Peace: A Service of Reconciliation
“The Other Person Is Gift”

Drawing on the theme of Pope Francis’ Lenten message, we seek God’s forgiveness for the times when we have not seen the presence of Christ in our brothers and sisters.

At this service we come together to acknowledge our sinfulness together, to pray, to reflect on the word of God, to contemplate God’s infinite mercy and, for those who would like, to receive that mercy in the sacrament of Reconciliation.
