The Catechism of UGCC “Christ our Pascha” pointed out that “A good opportunity for Confession arises during the Church’s fasts, during which, according to Church custom, the whole family approaches the Holy Mystery of Repentance.” (§461)

We are in the time of the Great Lent, so we offer you the “Instruction for those who approach the Holy Mysteries of Repentance (Confession) and Eucharist (Holy Communion)” to help you better prepare for these Mysteries.

Here are two files – one is the Instruction for children aged 7-14 and the other is for everyone over 14 years old:
