Form for Confession for the children
Good morning/afternoon, Father.
Bless me, Father, for I have sinned, it has been _________ since my last confession. These are my sins.
Father will give me a penance, I pray the Act of Contrition.
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest all my sins because of your just punishments. But most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Your grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.
Father prays the words of absolution and I bless myself.
As I leave I say, Thank you, Father.
I also have a few cards with these words on them. There is a small shelf outside Father Feeney’s confessional. I will put them there with a note to say they are for children. Please return them to that shelf. Please also encourage your child if they feel nervous for any reason, Father Feeney will certainly help them.
