Pamphlets for Churches, class hand-outs, bulletin inserts, other parish materials
Features an examination of conscience with prayers
Utilizes the gift of the Ten Commandments
Many Catholics avoid the Sacrament of Reconciliation simply because they don't remember how to confess their sins. They simply don't know what to say and are too embarrassed to ask. How to Make a Good Confession gives Catholics those words, describing the actions and responses for each step of the Sacrament. It also serves as a practical guide to a thorough examination of conscience, asking a series of commandment-based real-world questions. Even those familiar with the steps of the sacrament will benefit from a more thoughtful confession. Equally as important, How to Make a Good Confession will inspire Catholics to seek reconciliation by reminding them of the great grace and peace they can receive when they ask for God's endless mercy. This pamphlet is perfect for display in the back of the church or near the reconciliation room - parishioners can read it as they prepare for confession, or take it with them for reference. Use this pamphlet as a bulletin insert or mail it with other parish materials - it's a wonderful way to remind parishioners to seek God's forgiveness through the sacrament.
This has been excellent in re-training to examine conscience before confession. My wife and I both refer to the brochure before we attend reconciliation and have found this to be a very useful tool. Thank you!

Excellent brochures, complete with scripture. We actually distributed close to 100 of these at our ACTS Retreat for the Reconciliation portion. This way, whether someone is Catholic but doesn't quite remember the their examination of conscience, or non-Catholics never having participated in the Sacrament, these brochures were easy to read, very thorough and complete, and were a big help in assisting not only the Retreatants but some of us on Team, as well. Excellent!

Praise Lord Jesus Christ for the Sacrament of Confession! Great little informative pamphlet to give out, have in Church, to encourage Reconciliation.

Imagine getting these pamphlets and inspiring people to go to Confession--your parish will grow and holiness and you will bring someone closer to Christ. And their sins will be forgiven!
