The Cathedral has become well known as a place to which many come to receive pardon and peace from God in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Cathedral chaplains and other priests who assist with this ministry are available for several hours each day to hear confessions. 

Formula of absolution used in the Latin Church

"God, the Father of mercies, through the death and the resurrection of his Son has reconciled the world to himself and sent the Holy Spirit among us for the forgiveness of sins; through the ministry of the Church may God give you pardon and peace, and I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."
