At All Saints, Confession is available daily, by appointment.
In the Anglican tradition confession and absolution is part of corporate worship, particularly at Mass. The form involves a call to repentance by the priest, a period of silent prayer and reflection, a form of confession said together by all present and then the pronouncement of God’s forgiveness by the priest accompanied by the sign of the cross.
Private confession is also a valued element of our Anglo-Catholic sacramental tradition. Many people make their confession before major Feasts or at regular intervals throughout the year.
If you have never made your confession privately, and would like to talk through what this involves, please be in touch with Fr. Michael Bowie.
