Confession during Covid-19
As you are aware, our governor issued a "Stay at Home" order in effect from Friday, March 27 through Sunday, April 12. Fr. Michael and I will be hearing confessions during this time as it is deemed "essential pastoral care." Confessions will be heard this Saturday, March 28 at the church from 3:30-4:30PM. You should please enter through Door 11. In order to comply with the direction from the Archdiocese and public health officials, we have set up confessions to take place in the Cana Room. There is a private and face-to-face option in this room with appropriate distance between the priest and the penitent. Chairs will be placed 6 feet apart to support distance for those waiting in line. If all chairs are full, we will ask that you wait in your vehicle until you see somebody leave the church (to support the order given that 10 or more shall not gather). A staff member will be on-site to assist and provide direction as needed.
We encourage you to examine your conscious before entering, perhaps using online apps such as the Laudate, iConfess, or ConfesGuide. As we indicate in our video, given the number of people who may want to receive this sacrament, we'd encourage you to "be bold, be brief, and be gone." ;)
Additional opportunities for confession(subject to change):
Wednesday, April 1 at 6:30PM
Saturday, April 4 at 7:15AM
Wednesday, April 8 at 6:30PM
The same process will be followed. Please enter through Door 11.
