Can converts receive the Sacrament of Confession?
#3
If you are not yet confirmed, that is to say officially received into the Church, you are not yet Catholic.  The priest was 100% correct to advise you that you may confess (if a priest would be willing to hear it), but wouldn’t receive absolution.

I believe there might possibly be “life and death” situations where there would be an exception, but again, that is not the rule.

May I ask when you expect to be received into the Church?  It sounds like you may be receiving RCIA instruction, or equivalent private instruction from this priest.

If you’re having trouble finding answers about Catholicism, this is always a good place to start:
