CONFESSION

A way to maintain your relationship with God if you are staying home mandate is to say the Confiteor prayer, say the act of contrition, reflect on any minor or major mistakes you made that day and pray to God for help in the future. 

Can't go to confession during coronavirus? Consider an 'act of perfect contrition'

Catholic apologist Tim Staples, who can be heard on Catholic Answers Live on Catholic Spirit Radio, says that in scripture, "Jesus Christ delegated authority to his new Testament ministers to be mediators of reconciliation."All cities are in McLean County unless otherwise noted.  Some churches may simply say Confessions are after 8AM Mass (rather than a specific starting time) and may not list an ending time.  There may be exceptions to scheduled Confession times, such as if the priest does an emergency Anointing o the Sick.  Some churches may not have official Confession times.  You can speak to a priest when you see them to or email them and arrange a time.  This also works if you are unavailable at their scheduled times or if you have lengthy things to sayn Confession.
