Sacraments

RCIA-AC - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults adapted for Children and Teens

Section: 

 

"The 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, #1131)

The Roman Catholic Church recognizes seven Sacraments:  Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation (Confession), Anointing of the Sick, Marriage, and Holy Orders.  Sacramental preparation is required for children and/or adults prior to receiving the Sacraments.

 

Sacraments for Older Children and Becoming Catholic

Children of age 7 or above who have yet to be baptized in the Catholic faith and/or have yet to receive their first holy communion, please contact the RCIA Coordinator for Children, Lisa Salas, so that a plan for sacrament preparation can be put together specifically for the individual child and their family.

Marriage and Family Life Ministry

Section: 

 

The mission of the Marriage and Family Life Office is to help couples and individuals understand God's plan for marriage and the family, and to provide the support and skills needed to help couples live out thisplan in their daily lives.

Confirmation

Section: 

 

Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation that are all intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ.

Holy Communion

Section: 

 

As Catholics, we fully participate in the celebration of the Eucharist when we receive Holy Communion. We are encouraged to receive Communion devoutly and frequently.

Reconciliation

Section: 

 

  • Are you seeking to recover your friendship with God?
  • Has it been a while since your last confession?

No matter how long it has been or what your questions may be, we invite you to join us on a journey to rediscover the Sacrament of Penance.

The Sacrament of Penance is an experience of the gift of God's boundless mercy. Not only does it free us from our sins but it also challenges us to have the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against us. We are liberated to be forgivers.
