i’m going to speak to my priest about this tomorrow, but I was just wondering what you think and what the Church teaching is on this.
I applied for a volunteer position (which I need for school applications later on) and I was asked to come this Sunday for my first day (I think usually it would take place on weekdays though). There’s a special event going on that day and they need volunteers to help out.
The problem is that it’s on Sunday and I try not to work on Sundays. I try to spend that day with God, especially cause I’m so busy the rest of the week and don’t have very much time for prayer.
I can still fulfill my Sunday obligation by going to Mass on Saturday or Sunday evening… but I’m worried about working. I think I’d feel guilty if I went to volunteer (unless it’s alright), but this volunteer position is also important and it’s something I have to do eventually.
Do you think that I’d be sinning if I go? again, I’ll speak to my priest, but I’m just wondering what your thoughts are.
