Examination of Conscience:

Steps to making your 1st confession:

Discuss the steps of confession with your child so they are comfortable and prepared to make a good confession.
  • The confessional at our Parish is the library. There is a screen and a chair if your child prefers not to be seen, and there is a chair in front of Father Jim where your child may sit as well. As it is their first confession, we recommend that your child sit in front of Father Jim. There are many reasons for this and to name a few; they will get to know Father Jim better by being able to see him, Father Jim will be able to see their faces and see if they are in need of help, and it shows that there is nothing to be ashamed of or fear.
  • Tell them that Father Jim represents our Lord Jesus Christ who loves, forgives, and provides endless mercy to them as long as they ask for it and are truly sorry.
  • Tell them how important this Sacrament is, to be as honest as possible, and to be truly sorry for all their sins.
  • Steps to confession:
  • 1.) After sitting down your child will make the sign of the Cross and say “Bless me Father for I have sinned, this is my first confession.”
  • 2.) Your child will confess their sins and finish by saying “I am sorry for these and all my sins.”
  • 3.) Father Jim will give them a penance. Tell them a penance is something we do after confession to show how sorry we are for hurting God.
  • 4.) Your child will then read the Act of Contrition. They will have a copy of this prayer in the confessional to read, but it is important to read and practice it as it is long and some of the words maybe tricky for them.
  • 5.) Father Jim will give them Absolution.
  • 6.) Your child will make the sign of the Cross.
  • Your child will go into the church and do their penance.
