SACRAMENTS

The Church, in Christ, is a sacrament - sign & instrument of communion with God, & of the unity of the entire human race.  The one mediator, Jesus Christ, established & constantly sustains here on earth his holy church, the community of faith, hope & charity.

The seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church are the visible signs of God’s grace & love through Jesus Christ.  They are at the centre of Catholic life & worship.

In the various liturgical celebrations of the sacraments, the community is enabled to grow in faith, is confirmed in hope, & fired by charity, in order to go forth in service of God’s kingdom of justice, peace & love.

Christ Jesus sealed the new covenant in his blood.  The Paschal Mystery of his Death & Resurrection has created a new People of God, from all nations & languages that is one in the Spirit, that is a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.

Each Parish, set up under a pastor who takes the place of the bishop, in some way represents the visible church established throughout the world.  Regularly, the community celebrates the Eucharist, source & summit of the Christian life, & the other sacraments & worship services.

Through the liturgical life of the parish, above all in the common celebration of the Sunday Eucharist, we are united with the bishop & with the universal church, sharing our faith & hope, & graced to continue Jesus’ mission of service in the world.

The Sacraments of initiation are Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist.
The Sacraments of healing are Penance (reconciliation), Anointing of the Sick.
The Sacraments of calling are Marriage (matrimony) & Holy Orders.
