Sacraments

Each of the sacraments is grounded in the words and action of Jesus and in the traditions of the Christian Community. As Catholics, we believe that Jesus instituted the seven sacraments by his teaching and example. Through the sacraments, we receive grace, God's presence and help in our lives. The sacraments draw us closer to God, build up the Church, give worship to God, and satisfy our human hunger for God.
