I am in the process of Converting to Lutheranism from a mixed background. One thing that has been bothering me greatly is that I have had this urge that I must go to confession in a Catholic Church before I can in good conscience complete my process of becoming Lutheran.
This would be my first and last confession.
I do not know why I must do this I just know that it is something I must do.
I was baptized Catholic as was my Grandfather, and his father, and so on for as long as I can trace my ancestry. My brother and I will be the last of this line.
I have many questions about this but I am limited to one, forgive me I am going to ask you to answer two.
Am I allowed to confess my sins in a Catholic Church even though I am in the process of becoming Lutheran?
And… if I can how do I go about doing this…etiquette and rules?
