The Church Fathers sometimes called this sacrament “the more difficult baptism.” St. Ambrose drew a parallel between reconciliation and baptism: “there are water and tears: the water of Baptism and the tears of repentance.”
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated on Saturdays, from 3:30pm to 4:30pm in the Church. Or you may arrange for an appointment with Fr. John by calling the Parish Office (206-935-8353).
