Sacraments

Baptism

Baptism is seen as the sacrament of admission to the faith, bringing sanctifying grace to the person being baptized. In Catholicism the baptism of infants is the most common form, but unbaptized children or adults who wish to join the faith must also receive the sacrament.

First Communion

First Holy Communion is considered one of the holiest and most important occasions in a Roman Catholic person's life. It is the first time that a person receives the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, which is the eating of consecrated bread and drinking of consecrated wine.

Confirmation

The Ministry views confirmation as a sacrament instituted by Jesus Christ. It confers the gifts of the Holy Spirit (wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counselfortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord) upon the recipient, who must be a baptized person at least seven years old. 

Matrimony

Christian Marriage is a sacrament that orders the husband and wife to serve one another. This service is based on the Christian virtue of charity and is done in a spirit of care and concern for the good of the spouse and child(ren) following the example of Christ.

Confessions

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Christianity Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.

Anointing the Sick

Anointing the Sick in the essential rite of the sacrament, a Minister lays his hands on the sick person's head. Then he anoints the sick person on the forehead and palms of the hands with the oil of the sick, holy oil. During the anointing, the Minister says the following words: 'Through this holy anointing, may the Lord in His love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord Who frees you from sin save you and raise you up.
