Dear People of God at St. Patrick Cathedral:

There is good news for those who would like to participate in the sacrament of reconciliation (penance) without making an appointment. The cathedral will slowly be reinstating the regular offering of Confessions. 


Tuesday and Wednesday, May 19 and 20, from 11 am to 12 noon

Saturday, May 23, from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm

These will be the only days and times that are offered this week as we slowly and prudently start opening up again.

  • Confessions will occur outside in stations designated for that purpose.
  • They will occur in the courtyard of the pastoral center building where the offices are located.
  • One will enter through the gate that one normally accesses the office.
  • Social distancing of no less than six feet must be maintained as you wait for confession.
  • All those wanting to go to confession must wear a face mask or equivalent face covering.

This practice of confession outdoors and at designated days and times only will probably go on for a few weeks. Days and times, week by week, are subject to change, so please do not just show up expecting confession without consulting a published schedule on the parish website or through flocknotes.

Please note that the public celebration of the mass and distribution of holy communion has not yet started back up. Please be patient. Thank you.

May the blessing of the Risen Christ this Easter season be with all of you.

Fr. John Robert Skeldon



Querida gente de Dios en San Patricio

Hay buenas noticias para quienes deseen participar en el sacramento de reconciliación (penitencia) sin hacer cita. La catedral lentamente restablecerá la oferta regular de CONFESIONS ESTA SEMANA:

Martes, 28 de abril: 11 am - 12 pm

Miércoles, 29 de abril: 11 am – 12 pm

Sábado, 2 de mayo: 4 pm – 5:30 pm

Estos serán los únicos días y horarios que se ofrecen esta semana a medida que lentamente y con prudencia comencemos a abrir nuevamente.

  • Las confesiones ocurrirán afuera en estaciones designadas para ese propósito.
  • Ocurrirán en el patio del edificio del centro pastoral, donde se ubican las oficinas.
  • Se ingresará por la puerta que normalmente su accede a la oficina
  • El distanciamiento social de no mones de seis pies debe mantenerse mientras espera la confesión.
  • Todos aquellos que quieran ir a confesarse deben usar una mascara facial o una cubierta facial equivalente.

Esta práctica de confesión al aire libre y en días y horarios designados probablemente continuara durante algunas semanas. Los días y las horas, semana a semana, están sujetos a cambios, así que no se muestre esperando la confesión sin consultar un horario publicado en el sitio web de la parroquia o flocknotes. 

Tenga en cuenta que la celebración publica de la misa y la distribución de la sagrada comunión aun no ha comenzado de nuevo. Por favor sea paciente. Gracias. 

Que la bendición de Cristo resucitado esta temporada de pascua sea con todos ustedes.

Padre John Robert Skeldon
