    Tuesday Apr 5, 2022 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM

    Before Going to Confession:
    Pray to the Holy Spirit to make an Examination of Conscience to think of your sins. (An Examination of Conscience is at the bottom of this message)
    Stand in line to wait your turn to receive the sacrament.

    To Go to Confession:
    Enter the Reconciliation Room or go to a priest at a Reconciliation Station.
    Sit in the chair or kneel in front of the screen. (When you have a choice)

    How to go to Confession:
    1. Make the Sign of the Cross.
    2. Say: “Bless me Father, for I have sinned. This is my first Reconciliation OR the last time I went to Reconciliation was ___________ (6 months ago, last year, Lent, etc.)”
    3. Say: “ My sins are______________. (Tell the priest your sins and tell him when you are finished.)
    4. Say: “I am sorry for these sins and all the sins of my past life”
    5. Listen to the priest and his advice. 
    6. Listen and remember the Penance the priest gives you.
    7. Say: The “Act of Contrition” prayer.

    My God,
    I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good,
    I have sinned against you, whom I should love above all things.
    I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
    Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us, in his name, my God, have mercy.

    8. Make the Sign of the Cross as the priest blesses you and gives you Absolution.
    9. Say: “Thank you, Father.”

    After Going to Confession:
      Return to your seat and kneel down to pray and say your Penance.
      Say a Thank You prayer for God’s forgiveness.
