Or the Act of Penenace, this part of the Catholic Mass, just after the greeting.

The priest says: My brothers and sisters (or similar wording), to prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries, let us call to mind our sins.

Then, after a brief pause, all say:

I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned through my own fault in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do; and I ask blessed Mary, ever virgin, all the angels and saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Compare with: Act of Contrition
