Sacrament of Reconciliation
The Catholic Tradition holds at its core the celebration of God's forgiveness. The Sacrament of Reconciliation celebrates the reality that God loves us and never stops loving us. In fact we believe that God loves us when we are in sin just as much as when we are out of sin. Individual confession is available before masses or anytime by appointment. Call extension 5890 or stop by the Office of Campus Ministry anytime during the day. All of the Holy Cross priests on campus are likewise available for private confession.

"The Lord forgives our sins, heals us when we are sick, and protects us from death. His kindness and love are a crown on our heads." ~Psalm 103

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Students who respond to the Lord's invitation to follow the Gospel more closely in the Catholic Church are encouraged to enter the RCIA process. This two year long journey consists of prayer, faith sharing, instruction and celebrating the rites in the midst of the assembly at the Sunday Eucharist. The sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation are celebrated at the culmination of the process on the Second Sunday after Easter at the 8:00 P.M. Mass.

Registration for RCIA takes place in the months of August and September. Interested students may contact Fr. Thomas Looney, CSC, Director of Campus Ministry and College Chaplain, at 5836 or thomaslooney@kings.edu.

"If your are thirsty, come and drink water! If you don't have any money, come, eat what you want!"~Isaiah 55
