What to do if you cannot go to Confession or Holy Communion due to COVID-19

If you have to self-isolate or are quarantined due to COVID-19, it is unlikely that you will be able to receive the sacraments as normal.

In these circumstances, there are devotions through which you can receive absolution for your sins, (under certain conditions), and the consolation of Eucharistic grace.

These devotions are officially encouraged by the Church and have been practiced by saints.

Act of Perfect Contrition

The first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly - Sunday, July 25th
January 31, 2021, Pope Francis announced a new celebration to honor all grandparents and the elderly.
The theme chosen by Pope Francis for this year's celebration, is
'I am with you always' (Mt 28:20). This theme has been chosen as a way of expressing the closeness of the Lord and the Church to every older person, especially in these challenging pandemic times.

'I am with you always' is also a promise of closeness and hope that young and old can mutually share. Not only are grandchildren and young people called upon to be present in the lives of older people, but older people and grandparents also have a mission of evangelization, proclamation and prayer, and of encouraging young people in their faith.
