*Many Priests will be hearing confessions

Standing in line in silence will help prepare you to encounter our Lord in the sacrament.  Standing inside Church (rather than in the vestibule) will be more comfortable in cold winter weather.  The Reconciliation Room off the vestibule and the chapel sacristy both offer you the option of remaining behind the screen or going face to face.
