Father Francis Anthony and me.
Father Francis Anthony, Parish Priest of the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, visited today to allow me to fulfill the Sacrament of Penance and Sacrament of the Eucharist preceding Easter. He has been going around the homes of the who are unable to go to church for the past weeks for this purpose.
The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God’s unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.

Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ’s Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.
