I have been to confession twice at this parish. I didn’t exactly know how to go about it. I said “Bless me father for I have sinned, my last confession was _____ ago” and all that; I knew that at the end I should say the Act of Contrition, but I didn’t know when. He didn’t prompt me to say and it and both times I left without.
When do you say it? Should I just go ahead and…say it? When? I won’t expect a priest to prompt me, but I don’t know exactly when I should do so.
