I was baptized into Russian Orthodoxy when I was little. But for one reason or another my parents stopped attending, which I think simply because of laziness. As a chain reaction, I followed suit regrettably in my early teen years. Now I'm 25, I have control of my own life, and I want to transition back. I attended the Hours and Divine Liturgy at the parish when I attended many years ago, the rector asked if this was my first time here even. I know all the protocols and procedures that are followed. I grabbed the parish schedule and saw that Confessions are coming up.
At this point, should I make a slow transition of attending the Sunday Services or should I attend Confessions before Sunday Service? Keep in mind I attended infrequently other orthodox parishes during that time period in Russia on my own.
