Reconciliation used to be called Confession. The new name gives a better understanding of the meaning of the sacrament. The symbol of this sacrament is the laying on of hands together with the words of absolution. This action sacramentally makes real the loving forgiveness of the Father, and the penitent is reconciled with Him.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available in the Abbey Church on Sundays from 9.00am till 9.30am, in Parlour 3.  Please enter by the Narthex and turn right, and go to the end of the Narthex, and through the door.  Continue past the lobby where the lift is situated, and through the next door.  Parlour 3 is then on your right.
