A Letter from Fr. Paul Seaman

Posted in by

Dear Friends at Saint Clement Church,

It is my honor to have been named as pastor of Saint Clement by Cardinal Cupich! Saint Clement is one of the “gold standard” parishes. I am excited and hopeful that we will all work together closely to bring God’s joy to a world aching for good news. As I study the Anchors of Saint Clement, it is clear that this is a community on the move, anxious to dig in, serve those in need, and teach the Gospel, all in a spirit of discipleship in Jesus. God has amazing things in store for us!

The Guide to the Sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation/Confession)

The sacrament of Penance or Reconciliation is a sacrament of forgiveness, mercy, healing, and renewal. Through this sacrament, entrusted to the Church, God offers us the assured forgiveness of our sins and the strength to become more faithful followers of Jesus Christ. We approach the sacrament with a sincere sorrow for our sins and a desire to change. We leave the sacrament with the joy of repentance, gratitude for God’s gift of forgiveness, and a resolution to move forward as more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.
