The Reconciliation of a Penitent

Father Glenn is offering "The Reconciliation of a Penitent" / i.e. individual confession. Jesus entrusted his ministry of healing and reconciliation to his original followers and to those who follow him today. Reconciliation/Confession is an opportunity, a chance to name before God and someone else the things which we are sorry for and which burden our soul and conscience. "All Can, Some Should, None Must".


Father Glenn is a clinically trained pastoral counselor. Reconciliation is free. The confidentiality of the Confessional is morally and completely absolute. 


If you are interested in Reconciliation/Confession contact Father Glenn.
