Hi, guys —

I'm an 18-year-old willing Catholic male of sound body and mind. I've only received the Sacrament of Baptism and I want to make my first Confession/Reconciliation.

  • Can I just go to a Church and confess my sins whenever, or do I have to wait for a special program?

I haven't received my First Communion but eventually I want to.


  { If I haven't gone through any program, can I just go to a Church and confess my sins to a priest? }

Eric replied:


You'll need to go through a special program. Just call your local parish and explain the situation; they will probably have you meet with a priest who will work with you to get your First Communion. You will also want to get your Confirmation.

Glad to hear you want to complete your Christian initiation!


Gerard replied:

Thank you so much!
