Very cool. It's a new app to walk you through making a good confession.

- Mark Shea Catholic and Loving It

I had this app on the iphone and loved it. Thanks for bringing it to Android. Such a simple and effective way to prepare for confession.

- Nancy Android

You may be skeptical about using an iPhone or iPad app to help you prepare for a sacrament. I'll admit that I was… but after having tested and thoroughly reviewed the Confession app, I'm hooked!

- Lisa Hendy
Can I use this?

Yes, provided you do it with a spirit of reverence for the sacrament. Many of our users have found the Sacrament of Confession easier when they use the app during confession - the app has been designed as an aide to your confession, like a journal or prayer card.

Does the Vatican approve?

The app has been granted imprimatur which represents the approval of our local Bishop, Kevin C. Rhodes. The imprimatur is not an endorsement by the bishop of the contents of the app - It is a public declaration that nothing offensive to Catholic teaching on faith and morals has been found in it.

Do I still need a priest?

Yes. This app is intended to help a person prepare for the sacrament of Confession with a Catholic priest. It is not intended to function as a replacement for confession!

What's an imprimatur?

An Imprimatur is an official declaration by the Catholic Church that a work may be produced. Imprimatur derives from the Latin, "let it be printed," and having an imprimatur means that the local Bishop (in our case, Bishop Kevin C. Rhodes) has reviewed our work and found it to be in accord with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
