Archbishop Peter told us last weekend that we should stop hearing confessions when the Liturgy begins, and so we will have to cut it off at that point. It is best to come to the Vigil for confession, but if distance requires that you confess in the morning, be sure to come early so as to allow enough time before the Liturgy.
