Sacraments

The seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church are the building blocks of our faith. From birth to death, the Church provides rites that allow us to grow and persevere in our lives.

The Sacraments are here for all Catholics.

The Sacraments of Healing

The Lord Jesus Christ, physician of our souls and bodies, who forgave the sins of the paralytic and restored him to bodily health, has willed that his Church continue, in the power of the Holy Spirit, his work of healing and salvation, even among her own members. This is the purpose of the two sacraments of healing: the sacrament of Penance and the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick (CCC 1421).

The Sacraments at the Service of Communion

The Sacraments at the Service of Communion

Holy Orders and Matrimony, are directed towards the salvation of others; if they contribute as well to personal salvation, it is through service to others that they do so. They confer a particular mission in the Church and serve to build up the People of God (CCC  1534).
