Is 'confessioner' a word?


I'm pretty sure that's what you call a priest to whom people go to confess their sins.

See example:

Father Brown is a priest and a confessioner.

Priests are called 'confessors'.  The person who is confessing to the priest is also called a confessor.  'Confessionor' isn't an English word that I have seen.
