I suspect that in most places where sand replaces holy water in the stoups, the priests probably don’t hear confessions during Holy Week or the Triduum.
It happens every year despite the fact the the Holy See has made it clear that it is possible to hear confessions during the Triduum.
This comes from The Lair of the Catholic Caveman:
First You Get Rid Of The Sacramantals…
Then you get rid of the Sacraments
More lunacy out of the Cape Fear Deanery.
A week or so back, I posted of certain parish in this Deanery that went directly against the direction given by The Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments in regards of replacing Holy Water with sand during Lent.
Now I find out that another parish within this Deanery has cancelled ALL Confessions during Holy Week.
I found the following signs posted next to the supply room turned Confessional.
