Making a Good Confession
Examination of Conscience
Before celebrating the Sacrament of Confession, one should prepare themselves with an examination of conscience. This is a “prayerful self-reflection on our words and deeds in the light of the Gospel to determine how we may have sinned against God” (The Catechism of the Catholic Church, Glossary).
You can view examples here of Examinations of Conscience that can aid you as you prepare for the Sacrament.
Children who are at least seven years old may prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Confession for the first time. Formation usually begins in 2nd grade, along with preparation for First Eucharist.
