The centuries-long practice of confessing one’s sins to God in the presence of a priest, who can then pronounce absolution, is a powerful sacrament, an important way to make a break with past sins.
Anglicans can participate in two forms of confession, the general confession, and the private confession. The priest and congregation perform the general confession during the Eucharist or other services. An Anglican may also confess to God in the presence of a priest without any other witnesses, naming the specific sins they have committed and seeking special counsel. If you wish to confess privately, please contact the parish priest.
