Examination of Conscience


Preparing for Reconciliation is a must. A simple five minutes to slow down and reflect is all you need to make this sacrament meaningful and significant. One of the most useful tools to help you prepare is an Examination of Conscience. Catholics are encouraged to examine their conscience everyday and offer a prayer of sorrow. Having an examination on hand is useful not only for your personal prayer, but the Sacrament of Reconciliation, whether you go twice a year or twice a week! We have a variety of options suitable for all ages to choose from and all come with check boxes you can mark to help you remember if it has been a while!
