LEARNING FOCUS 4: Penitential Rite 1 and 2.


There are two different ways of celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Rite 1 and Rite 2.

In Rite 1, individuals will make their Confession to the priest.  Before they do that, they will have prayed and thought carefully about their life, have contrition and want to make a new start.  They will tell the priest their sins and listen carefully to his advice.  


Sometimes Rite 2 of the Sacrament of Reconciliation is used.  This often happens in Advent and Lent when people gather together to prepare for the feasts of Christmas or Easter.  In Rite 2, a number of people come together for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, often with a few priests who have come from neighbouring parishes.  There is a service of prayers and readings, which help people to prepare.  They are then invited to make a personal confession to one of the priests available.  Sometimes schools will have a Penitential Service with the opportunity for confession, Rite 2.  Whatever a person talks to the priest about is in absolute confidence.  They can feel that they are talking to God alone.  When the confessions are finished, the priest invites everyone to thank and praise God for his mercy and forgiveness.
