Sacraments

Sacraments are visible rites seen as signs and efficacious channels of the grace of God to all those who receive them with the proper disposition.

The Seven Sacraments

  1. Baptism – Original Sin is washed away as we enter the world of Christianity.
    2. Penance/Reconciliation – our chance to verbally express our sorrow for our misdeeds and ask God’s forgiveness.
    3. Eucharist – we receive the Body of Christ.
    4. Confirmation – we receive the Holy Spirit.
    5. Matrimony – man and woman become one.
    6. Holy Orders – a man receives the Holy Orders
    7. Extremunction or Anointing of the Sick – a special way of receiving God’s spiritual and physical healing. God is with us in sickness and health. We receive a special time of Grace during illness.
