Should Catholics work on Sundays?

November 28, 2013

We all know that we must keep holy the Sabbath Day, but at the same time, in this day and age, in our society, we take for granted that businesses are open on Sunday and people work. Maybe we don't work ourselves, but we go shopping, or in our desire for leisure time with our family we may go to an amusement park, the museum or to the zoo. Is that wrong? Can we keep the Sabbath holy and still work? Is the Sunday a day of rest or a day of worship? Should we go shopping on Sundays? And what are the obligations of a Catholic employer? These are some of the questions that we'll be discussing this week.
Be sure to join us for a featured chat with Archbishop Daniel Bohan of Regina, this Friday, November 29th and Sunday, December 1 at 7pm and 11pm ET (8pm PT), and in the meantime, join our discussion on Facebook.
