Sacrament of Reconciliation
Confession will be available in the Adoration Chapel on Saturdays from 4 to 4:30 pm. Please enter through the Main Sanctuary where an usher will direct you to the Chapel Door for Confession.
You may also schedule an appointment during the week by calling the office at 770-416-0002. Please indicate if you would prefer your confession appointment to be outside or inside with social distancing.
Or Offer an Act of Contrition
When the Sacrament of Confession is not readily available, we are still called to examine our consciences before the Lord and ask His forgiveness for any sins. The Church teaches that among the penitent’s acts, contrition holds the first place. Perfect contrition—that arising from love of God or charity—can “obtain forgiveness of mortal sins if it includes the firm resolution to have recourse to sacramental confession as soon as possible” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1452).
- To learn more about the Church’s teaching on contrition, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
