Pray together       
Act of Contrition
(Sign of the Cross)
My God.
I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.

I firmly intend, with your help,
to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.

Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered an died for us.
In his name, my God, have mercy.  Amen.
(Sign of the Cross)
