Can abosolution be granted by a parrish priest for abortion, pre-martial sex, contraception or infidelity. Do any of these require the priest to consult a higher authority?
The parish Preist can absolve all these. . I believe at one time in some dioceses only the Bishop could absolve the sin of abortion but this is no longer the case.
yes your priest can absolve…if you or anyone needs to confess… please do so and enjoy Gods peace
