The Confession:

Minister:      Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed for us.  Let us therefore rejoice by putting away all                      malice and evil and confessing our sins with a sincere and true heart.


All:       Almighty God, our heavenly Father,
             we have sinned against you
             and against our neighbour
             in thought and word and deed,
             through negligence, through weakness,
             through our own deliberate fault.
             We are truly sorry
             and repent of all our sins.
             For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
             who died for us,
             forgive us all that is past
             and grant that we may serve you in newness of life to the glory of your name.     Amen.


Minister:      Almighty God,
                   who forgives all who truly repent,
                   have mercy upon you,
                   pardon and deliver you from all your sins,

                   confirm and strengthen you in all goodness,
                   and keep you in life eternal;
                   through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All           Amen.
