I am well on my way to deciding to convert to OC. However, there aren't any Orthodox Christian churches or groups over here in Carbondale, Illinois. I'm not all that comfortable making a confession in the RC churches here because two of the three RC priests here have told me I don't need to confess every week, and I personally know that I do. Both of these priests have even refused to take my confession because they believe I'm being too serious with my sins. Also, all three priests know I'm wanting to go OC, so it feels like I'm not too welcome...
What I want to know is if we haven't converted yet, can we make a confession in an OC church? I can find one through an Internet map. Thanks!
