More about Reconciliation (Confession)
Catholics are required to confess grave sins at least once a year. But celebration of the sacrament of Reconciliation is recommended for all sins. We do not need to be grave sinners for the periodic celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation to help us on our spiritual journey. And to comfort everyone who confesses, it is important to remember that priests are obliged to keep secret what we tell them in Confession.
