Campus Ministry and several nearby churches offer numerous regularly scheduled opportunities to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance or Confession. If you have questions about this sacrament, you might want to take a few minutes to watch the videos on this page from Busted Halo, an online ministry dedicated to helping people understand the Catholic faith, put it into practice in their everyday lives, and share it with others.'s fantastic introduction to the Sacraments video series asks questions like: Why do we have to confess our sins to a priest? Can't we just pray to God for forgiveness? If I sin but no one is affected, then can I say, 'no harm, no foul?'

These questions and more are answered in this edition of "Sacraments 101 + 201," a web video series geared for those who'd like an introduction or refresher course on these important, tangible Catholic experiences of God.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the healing sacraments and celebrates the loving embrace of God when we turn toward him and away from our sins.
