I am Roman Catholic, but only have been one for months. I didn't really go to church that much, when I was younger. I was technically an Anglican before the Easter Vigil of 2018.

im not knowledgeable enough of all other religions to be able to give an honest answer to this question, to my knowledge only catholics, but that doesn;t mean much,

As a Protestant, we confess our sins privately to God in prayer. We don't believe like the Catholics do that a priest or pope can forgive sins....only God. We don't need an intermediary, we go straight to God. I hope that answers your question.

I have no idea.

Here is the penitential order and general confession of sin from the Episcopalian Book of Common Prayer, said before every Eucharist.
