Sacraments

BAPTISM:

Baptism is the holy sacrament in which original sin is banished from the soul, thus giving us rebirth as sons and daughters of God.

RECONCILIATION:

Reconciliation is a sacrament of the New Law given to us by Christ in which forgiveness of sins committed after baptism is granted through the priest’s absolution to those who with true sorrow confess their sins. Reconciliation is available Saturdays at 4:00 PM or by appointment.

COMMUNION:

Communion is one of the most important sacraments of the Catholic Church.  Catholics believe that in this sacrament, the bread and wine during mass are converted into the actual body and blood of Christ through an event called transubstantiation.

CONFIRMATION:

Confirmation, like baptism, is a sacrament of initiation and the deepening of baptismal gifts. This sacrament roots us more deeply in our identity as God’s children, unites us more firmly with Christ, and binds us more closely to the church.

MATRIMONY:

Commonly referred to as Marriage, this sacrament  is a covenant by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life and which is ordered by its nature to the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring.

VOCATIONS:

Vocation is a sacrament that refers to a call. It is God’s invitation, His call to each person to love and serve Him and His Church in a certain state or way of life. Each person’s vocation stems from the grace of Baptism.

ANOINTING OF THE SICK:

The anointing of the sick is a sacrament that is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death.  It conveys several graces and imparts gifts of strengthening in the Holy Spirit against anxiety, discouragement, and temptation.  Also, this sacrament conveys peace and fortitude.
