We give away what we call "The Penance Kit". It is a collection of documents that answer the questions below:
  • What is the Sacrament of Penance and why it is important in our lives?
  • How do I prepare for the Sacrament?
  • What is involved with doing it and how do I make a good confession?
  • What is Absolution?
  • What do I do after confessing and receiving Absolution?
  • What are some of the common prayers?
All of the information we provide is available for free from many good sources. We hope to add value by seeking that information out, organizing it, making it simple to understand, making it easy to relate to, and providing it all in one place.
You may also create your own penance kit with the information we provide. A couple reasons to request a kit from us and possibly donate are:
  • We laminate the paper the content is printed on so it will last a long time and hopefully be past along to other people as needed.
  • We include some prayer cards we like with some nice artwork that we are not talented enough to create ourselves.
  • Donating supports the evangelization of the Sacrament. Specifically it helps provide for web hosting, paper, printing, laminating, postage, incorporation and related fees, and the rental of a post office box.

To receive a free Penance Kit, you must agree to the following:
  • I agree to offer my favorite prayer at least once for the intention of evangelizing the Sacrament of Penance.
  • I agree that if I no longer need The Penance Kit I am sent, I will give it away to someone else who can learn from it or use it.
  • I agree not to sell The Penance Kit or its contents.
  • I agree to not make multiple requests for The Penance Kit. (We give away the kit for free to one household which we define as a physical mailing address. If you would like more than one kit please provide a donation to help pay for the paper, printing, laminating, and postage.You can also print and make your own kit!)
You may also create your own kit by downloading the documents.
