How To Go To Confession

Here is a short video from explaining what is Confession, and how to confess. In short:

  • It's about reconciliation with God;
  • Prepare you Confession with an examination of conscience;
  • Find out when to go to confession (every day from half an hour before Mass in your case);
  • Go to the confessional, say your sins;
  • Receive an imposed penance and the absolution;
  • Do your penance;
  • Celebrate your being forgiven!

In order to receive the Sacrament of Penance in Amsterdam outside of Mass times, please contact the chaplain.
