A four-part series presented by Fr. Scott exploring the seven Sacraments of the Church:
Saturday, 11/11/23

Saturday, 1/13/24
The Sacraments are sacred mysteries, sacred because they are the means by which
God becomes present in our lives as Catholic Christians. They are words and actions
together. For example, the sacrament of baptism combines the words “I baptize you in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” with the action of pouring
water over an infant’s head. The sacrament of Baptism brings the active presence of
God into the life of the person baptized. By the sacrament the person is fundamentally
changed and becomes a Christian. As such, the sacraments are not merely symbols. A
symbol stands for something. A sacrament is the thing it stands for.
Catholics believe that Christ has given the Church seven sacraments: baptism,
reconciliation, confirmation, Eucharist, marriage, the anointing of the sick, and holy
orders. We invite you to attend this informative series to grow in knowledge of the 7
Sacraments in order to grow closer to our Lord Jesus Christ.
