Sacrament of Reconciliation Resuming July 8, 2020

We are happy to announce that we will be able to make the Sacrament of Confession available to those who feel the need to come. Please remember that Confession is a time to receive the sacrament, and not to have a conversation with the priest about life. Kindly remember, that confession is not spiritual direction, it is a time to be sorry about one’s faults, and not to make excuses for them. Please remember to keep your confession simple and to the point. It may be helpful to you to consider the common thread that brings you to confession.

 

Confessions will resume on a regular schedule:

            Beginning: Wednesday, July 8, 5:30-6:30 PM

            Register: 756-3636 (office)

                        Because of contract tracing concerns, you must register and be given a specific time slot for confession. In order to avoid gatherings, please arrive close to the time given to you and check-in with the volunteer. You are welcomed to wait in your car if you arrive early.

 

 

Please be mindful of the following guidelines:

-  Please stay home if you are having symptoms or if you have been in contact with someone

   who is symptomatic.

-  Proper distance will be observed while waiting for confession. It is not a time to socialize.

-  Masks are to be used at all times, even while waiting for the sacrament.

-  The use of hand sanitizer and checking of your temperature is mandatory for each penitent.

-  Please consider using the sanitizing spray and paper towel that will be available to sanitize

   your chair after you have finished confession.

 

For those who are vulnerable, there is always the possibility to make an individual appointment with the priest for another time.

Bishop's Announcement

Bishop Jaime Soto has shared a new message to the Faithful about our reopening plans in the Diocese of Sacramento:

 

"The Catholic community in the Diocese of Sacramento will be able to celebrate the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus Christi, around the sacred altars of their parish churches on Sunday, June 14th. I am lifting the heartbreaking suspension of public celebrations of the Sacrifice of the Mass starting on Monday, June 8th. This will help pastors ready the churches for the glorious Feast of Corpus Christi. Parishes that are prepared to implement all the necessary public health protocols may begin offering Mass with the Faithful on June 8th."

 

The public guidelines recently shared for resuming public celebrations of the Mass have been updated to reflect our continued work with public health officials. The message to the faithful, a video, and the updated guidelines are available on our website:

ICP Registration

On September 16, the Independent Compensation Program (ICP) will begin accepting registrations. The Diocese of Sacramento is joining those in Los Angeles, Fresno,  Orange, San Bernadino and San Diego in a program that brings compensation and justice to those who were sexually abused as minors by diocesan priests. All claims, regardless of how long ago they may have occurred, will be considered by the program. The ICP is independent, outside the control of any diocese. For more information, including how to submit a claim, please visit www.CaliforniaDiocesesICP.com. Let us always remember to pray for the victims of priest sexual abuse. As their pain is ongoing, so must our prayers for them be.
