Sacramental Life

Sacraments are visible signs of God's saving love for us. Every person, and every action has the potential for being a sign, a symbol and a "sacrament". Each of us is called to be a sacrament of Jesus' love and healing.

The Sacraments that we celebrate as Roman Catholics are:

  • Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, 
  • Sacraments of Healing: Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick, 
  • Sacraments of Service: Matrimony and Holy Orders. 

Each of these are expressions of God's saving action in our lives.

Faith-filled celebration of the sacraments is the means of salvation and holiness for us as individuals and as members of the church community.
