Unfortunately no confessions are available at the moment due to the possibility of infection. The bishop has said that all obligation to receive Holy Communion and go to Confession (known as the Easter duties) is remitted for 2020. He asks that we remind the faithful that in such circumstances as these a perfect act of contrition suffices to forgive even grave sin. To perform a perfect act of contrition one simply confesses one's sins privately to God, with the firm intention of repentance, expressing sorrow for our sins based on love of God not on fear of damnation. One must also have the firm resolution to go to sacramental confession as soon as is reasonably possible when circumstances return to normal


 

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus, I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. 

                                I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.                                                                              Never permit me to be separated from You.     Amen
