Until further notice, Fr. Patrick will offer confessions on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 11 to 11:30 a.m. These times are in addition to Thursday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and Sunday from 9 to 10 a.m. All confessions are heard at the North Church.
With feedback from parishioners, Fr. Patrick has implemented the following changes:
- People must sanitize their hands before entering the confessional and after leaving the confessional. Hand sanitizer is available at the door to the confessional.
- Anyone who goes to confession must remain behind the screen sitting in a chair that is set back over 6 feet from the priest on the other side of the screen. In order to decrease hand contact, the chair does not have arms and no one is permitted to use the kneeler at this time.
- Those waiting in line will observe social distancing of 6 feet or more and make sure that no more than 10 people are in the building at a time.
We also continue to sanitize the surfaces in the confessional and the church regularly.
If individuals are unable to make the scheduled times or if they would like to make different arrangements for confession due to virus concerns, please contact Fr. Patrick at the parish office (262-377-1070).
