Beginning Saturday, May 30, 2020, we will offer extended hours for penance. This is a great opportunity for those who have not been to penance for a long time.  Bring a friend.  Click to see the schedule.

  • The confessionals will not be used. Confessions will be heard in Room 103 and Room 109, located in the upper narthex hallway.
  • Entry to the confession area will be through the narthex of the Shrine Church. Please follow the social distancing markers while waiting.
  • Outside doors to the Shrine Church will open 15 minutes prior to the start of confession.
  • Father Lease and Father Josh will be available to hear confessions. *
  • All penitents must wear a facial covering/mask at all times when in the building including during confession.
  • Penitents will stand in front of OR behind the priest during their confession.
  • Out of respect for other penitents, please be concise.
  • After the blessing, penitents should exit the building.  Your penance should be completed in a private space outside of the Church.

*There may be some unforeseen circumstances when only one priest will be available during these times.
