Reconciliation During Pandemic

Inside Confessions (beginning October 31)

Confessions will be offered on Saturdays at 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Please follow these guidelines for the safety of our priests, as well as yourselves.

  • Two stations will be set up in the Hermes-Media Center.
  • The penitent will have temperatures taken as they enter and are asked to wear masks and social distance as they wait. Names will not be recorded for Reconciliation.

Drive-thru Confessions (during the warmer months)

 
•    INDIVIDUALS, please wear a mask and confess from the driver’s side of the vehicle. When coming to confession you may not have passengers in the vehicle to maintain the seal of the confessional.
•    Priest confessor will be in his vehicle facing the opposite direction so essentially it will be driver side to driver side we will be starting with two confessors so move to the open confessor vehicle.
•    This accomplishes the very important social distancing and provides needed confidentiality and takes weather into consideration.
•    To line up for confession come into the parking lot off of Kirk Road drive around the rectory to drive along the drive between the rectory and the front office entrance. Please keep a respectful distance from the confessing vehicle.
•    Exit to Kirk Road
•    As in all things theory and practical application don’t always match we will continue to fine-tune as we move forward. Please be tolerant and patient.
