The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also called Confession, allows us to confess our sins, receive absolution, and be reconciled with the Church.
Reconciliation must be received before First Communion (Eucharist). Children and youth receive two years of instruction before receiving Reconciliation in 2nd grade. Classes are also available for children and youth who are above 2nd grade. Adults would participate in our RCIA program.
Confessions are available by appointment with one of our priests, call the Parish Office at (310) 566-1500 to make an appointment.
5:30 pm – 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday - in the Church, follow signs to the vestibule waiting area.
4:30 pm – 5:00 p.m. Saturdays - in the Church, follow signs to the vestibule waiting area.
For safety concerns, the main Church doors may be closed before the start of 5:30 p.m. Confessions. If that is the case, please enter through the Duval Patio doors entrance, which can be accessed from the California Ave. Entrance, between the rectory and the Duval Center.
We will host a communal reconciliation service for all those interested in receiving individual confession and absolution. Several priests will be available for the sacrament.
