working on sunday

i have an employee who just applied for a job at safeway & was told he would have to work on sunday occasionally----should he take the job or pass on it at this time

If it is going to conflict with his attendance of Mass, then he should definitely pass on it. However, if he can still find time to go to Mass every Sunday, it is fine to work occasionally.

Lot of discussion. Check out these threads:
