abortion and absolution


#1

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?


#2

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.


#3

yes your priest can absolve…if you or anyone needs to confess… please do so and enjoy Gods peace
