I am currently in RCIA in my parish. I am unbaptized and have never been part of another church.
I have been told that, as part of my class, I will be expected to show up this week to offer confession for my sins. My understanding is that my lack of baptism absolutely forbids me from receiving this sacrament, and I am concerned that my parish may be playing fast-and-loose with the sacraments. Is it nevertheless still licit for me to “go through the motions” of confession for educational purposes, though it will confer no sacramental grace upon me?
