FORGIVEN: The Transforming Power of Confession has been carefully designed to help Catholics more deeply encounter the great gift of God's mercy in the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation and to help this sacrament become a regular part of their spiritual journey. This series will explore the profound effects and healing grace of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

In this series, participants will discover ther merciful way that God seeks us out when we have sinned and calls us back to himself. They will examine the sacrament from the perspective of botht he priest and the penitent, and will explore the scriptural foundation of the sacrament. This study will help them recognize the beauty of the Rite of Penance and the transformative power of the grace God offers us in this sacrament.
