Can a Parish Priest Absolve the Sin of Adultery?




Full Question

Can a parish priest absolve the sin of adultery?

Answer

Yes, any priest with faculties can forgive the sin of adultery. The only exception that would render the absolution invalid is if the priest himself had been part of the adulterous affair (can. 977).
