Question from Debbie on 3/29/2008:
Are confessions allowed the day before Easter? There is no morning Mass and no sacraments that day. A local parish I know did have confessions on Friday and Saturday. My parish did not have any that weekend at all. Thanks for answering all our many questions. Debbie
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 3/31/2008:
Yes, confessions are permitted during the Sacred Triduum.
I am cautious about condemning parishes that do not offer confessions during the Triduum. Often, priests are quite busy during those days and may have scheduled adequate time for confessions during much of Lent.
