MISSION STATEMENT
To provide an educational opportunity for each student of St. Malachy School to mature spiritually, intellectually, culturally, socially and physically.
The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation (commonly called Confession, Reconciliation, or Penance) is one of seven sacraments of the Catholic Church, in which the faithful obtain divine mercy for the sins committed against God and neighbor and are reconciled with the community of the Church. By this sacrament Christians are freed from sins committed after Baptism. The sacrament of Penance is considered the normal way to be absolved from mortal sins which would otherwise condemn a person to Hell.  As biblical basis for this sacrament, the Catholic Church refers to James 5:16,  "confess your sins to one another" and to Jesus' breathing the Holy Spirit to the Apostles, saying, "Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained."
