Update – March 17, 2020

Taken from Archbishop’s Letter on Coronavirus:

All communal penitential services are to be cancelled.

Provision is to be made for the Sacrament of Reconciliation to be available to all who seek it, taking into account the following considerations:

  • Confessionals should not be used at this time, for health reasons;
  • Confessions should be heard in a room large enough to allow at least a two-metre distance between priest and penitent, but without being overheard. Provision should also be made (a portable screen or other means) for those who wish to confess anonymously. This may require playing chant or other music in the background. I count on you to find other creative ways to make it possible for the faithful to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
