"Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against Him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion." 

- Catechism of the Catholic Church-

First Communion / Eucharist

"At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'" 

- Catechism of the Catholic Church


"Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." 

- Catechism of the Catholic Church-


"The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament."

Anointing of the Sick

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is the proper sacrament for those Christians whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age. (Cf. PCS, no. 97) It gives them a special grace of the Holy Spirit, strengthening (Cf. PCS, no. 6) those “who are afflicted by illness, providing them with the strongest means of support.” (PCS, no. 5) “Those who receive this sacrament in the faith of the Church will find it a true sign of comfort and support in time of trial.” (PCS, no. 52)

​Through the sacrament of anointing, the sick person is united with the faith community. Serious illness causes a disruption of human life and relationships, isolating the sick person from the community. “All who are united in the bond of a common baptism and a common faith are joined together in the body of Christ since what happens to one member affects all. The sacrament of anointing effectively expresses the share that each one has in the sufferings of others. When the priest anoints the sick, he is anointing in the name of the power of Christ himself (see Mark 6:13). On behalf of the whole community, he is ministering to those members who are suffering.” (PCS, no. 98)

Holy Orders

"Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate."
