No, it is not sufficient to have good intentions. A correct choice of actions is also needed.
A person could have invincible ignorance about a particular sin, and so avoid culpability for an act that is objectively immoral. Or a person could have substantial ignorance, not realizing that an act is gravely immoral, but perhaps having some limited perception that the act is wrong, and therefore have reduced culpability.
