The Confessional stands in the northeast transept and is built of wood and etched glass with a door opening from each side. Etched in the glass is a depiction of the Bible story of the Prodigal Son. In contrast to the mural above the Confessional, the bearded consoler is human as evidenced by the lack of a halo. Other elements in the etched glass include rocks and trees appropriate to a desert setting in which the story of the Prodigal Son took place. Parched and barren plants on one side convey the message of desolation found in the experience of wandering in the wilderness caused by sinfulness and separation from God. Plush greenery on the opposite side of the Confessional symbolizes the fullness of life found in forgiveness. The story of the Prodigal Son is told in the Gospel of Luke 15:11-32.
