Jesus is our high priest. When we pray, we pray in Jesus's name because he intercedes on our behalf before the Father. If you are still going to an earthly priest to have your sins forgiven, you have completely misunderstood the point of Jesus’s sacrifice of himself and the New Testament scriptures. He is the only sacrifice that can thoroughly wash away your sins; no other sacrifice will avail. There is nothing an earthly priest can offer to forgive your sins and only one high priest, and it is Jesus; all others are actors. If you want to confess your sins to someone, talk to Jesus. If your church is teaching something different, you may need a new church.
Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. Hebrews 7:25-26
