Hey guys, this is my first post so I hope I’m not forgetting something or if this is in the right place. I’m in the middle of trying to come back to the Roman Catholic faith after nearly a decade of agnosticism, and I thought that going to confession is obviously a good step in this plan. Although, I haven’t went to confess since I was 7 years old and now I’m in college, (I don’t even think I did it right when I was 7 come to think of it…) so I have no idea what to do when I go there. On top of that, I have much to confess unfortunately, so I’d think I would be a bit self-conscious about holding up a line as I fumble over countless sins atop my inexperience.
One question I have, is I’m wondering if there is any way I can confess unconventionally like for example scheduling a personal meeting with a priest? Has anyone done this and could share their experience or recommendations? Of course, if you have any words to encourage me to go forth with the conventional confession, it would be appreciated just as well. Thank you.
