I am both new to the forum and new to the Catholic Church (I was confirmed and received my first communion at this past Easter Vigil)!
I have been going to my church regularly on Sunday and sometimes Saturday and I love to be involved! Last week, I was out of town for a relay with my parents for Saturday and Sunday and although I did find a nearby church, there was no way-with me not having my license yet-to get to any of the mass times (my parents were both very busy at the 24-hour Relay for Life event and couldn’t give me a ride). I read that it was a mortal sin to miss mass on the Sabbath Day and that I must quickly go to confession before being able to receive communion again…is this all true and are there any exceptions? I don’t mind going to confession but was just curious of the seriousness of my situation. Thank you all!
