The Sacrament of Reconciliation(Confession) takes place each Saturday in St. James’ Church, Athboy from 2pm to 3pm in the Adoration Room. (On the right as you enter the Church).


Before Christmas and during Holy week there is a Penitential Service where a number of priests are available for Confession.


There are a number of different versions of the Act of Sorrow (Contrition).


Act of Sorrow :
O my God, I thank you for loving me.
I am sorry for all my sins:
For not loving others and not loving you.
Help me to live like Jesus and not sin again. Amen
