Hello everyone, I have a question about the morality of working on Sundays. I’m currently trying to get a part-time job working at a local movie theater. I’m a college student and hope to carry this job on through the Summer at least, now since the theater is open 7 days a week, odds are I will at some point be required to work on a Sunday and I’m wondering if this is acceptable?
I’d rather not work on Sunday, and if I’m required to I’ll plan to get to Mass for the Saturday vigil or perhaps a very early mass on Sunday. But would I still be in the wrong for working at all? Strictly speaking I don’t “need” to work to survive (although this money could help with student debt later on), I live at home still, but I don’t want to be unproductive and idle for the next few months by abstaining from work just because of the chance I might be required to work a shift on Sunday.
What should I do in this situation?
