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, 4:00-5:00 in the Reconciliation Chapel, located in the south vestibule of the Church. Communal celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation are celebrated in preparation for Christmas and Easter.
