Is this considered working on a Sunday?


I really need a job, and I want to start this coming week. I have an interview set for tomorrow (which is a Sunday). The girl on the phone told me I would need to do training that same day also. But, I wouldn’t have to work Sundays if I get the job. Is it a sin if I went to the training and interview, even though it’s a Sunday? Is it considered working? (Note: I went to mass on Saturday)


Is it considered working, and is it a sin are two different questions.

Is it working? Yes

Is it a sin? No

We are to keep the Sabbath holy, but if we must work to support ourselves and our families, we can do so. You can talk to your pastor if you are feeling concerned about this.


If you attended Mass on Saturday evening you fulfilled your Sunday obligation.
