He will speak about the Sacrament of Reconciliation in a presentation titled, "A New Look at an Ancient Gift.” Father Isopo will provide a brief overview of the roots of reconciliation and then focus on the Sacrament of Reconciliation as a gift. His presentation will also help us better understand such terms as sacrament, grace, sin, reconciliation and the implications for living an abundant life. Happy Hour and the presentation includes: a social gathering of food and drinks; followed by Father Isopo’s presentation; a question-and-answer session; and concludes with additional social time.
