I've been trying to get a hold of one of the only english speaking priests in my area but have not been able to, so I have decided next time he runs a service I will wait around afterwards, as I know he'll be there, until he appears not so busy then I can approach him.
Firstly - I want to know, how do i start a confession? what do i say when i approach the priest? my family is technically orthodox but we have not been raised to go to church often, and now i am 16 and after surgery have become much more religious. so i am a complete beginner in things like confession, bt i would liek to make it a regular thing
and secondly - can i bring someone non orthodox with me (my friend) because i love talking about what i know about the religion and i might be there for a long time waiting for the priest
what are you guys' thoughts?
