Sacraments

"The seven sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required dispositions." (Catechism of the Catholic Church)

Sacraments

Baptism

Our Baptism tells the story of us being rescued from sin by Jesus, through his death and resurrection. Our parent’s make a choice for us to be baptized which means we are entering into Christian life and unity with Jesus.

Our Baptism ceremony represents our new life with Jesus Christ and it is a way of showing that we love and trust him.

First Holy Communion

The Holy Eucharist completes our journey into Christian life. Because we have been baptized, we have our First Holy Communion ceremony, which allows us to participate with the whole community in the Lord’s whole sacrifice by means of the Eucharist.

God has created our world and at Baptism he calls us to be in communion with him. We meet Jesus at mass and he asks us to ‘Do this in memory of me,’ when speaking of the bread and wine at the last supper.

Confirmation

Confirmation is the sacrament which is enriched by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit strengthens us and obliges us to be witnesses to Christ.

At our Confirmation ceremony, we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit whilst reaffirming the choice our parents made for us when we were baptized.

Sacrament of Marriage

Like the other six sacraments of the Church, marriage is a sign or symbol which reveals the Lord Jesus and through which his divine life and love are communicated.

In a sacramental marriage, God’s love becomes present to the spouses in their total union and also flows through them to their family and community.
