From baptism through the anointing of the sick, Christ is present every time each sacrament is celebrated..
The Seven Sacraments
The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) affirms that “the seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments in Christian life. They give birth and increase healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith.”
For Catholics, the sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship.
The sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance, has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration
Holy orders, or Ordination, is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church. The ritual of healing is available for spiritual, physical and mental illness.
As Catholics, we believe the Eucharist is the real presence of Jesus Christ and that He lovingly offers Himself as spiritual nourishment with each celebration of the Mass.
