For the time being, due to COVID-19, all confessions are heard in the courtyard bell tower. More information HERE.

The main confessional is located in the back inside of the church (to the left as you walk through the center doors). A second confessional is near the statue of St. Joseph on the right-hand side. At times two priests are available during the scheduled time. Look to see if the priest is in the confessional and the red/green lights on to know where to form a line. Please maintain a respectful distance for the privacy of all involved.
