Boys and Priests

Here is Opie with his Godfather and his friend with our parish priest. The boys went up to the front after Mass to receive their certificates for Reconciliation and Communion. We will be putting these in his baby book. The official records will go on file at the church the boys were baptized in, as will all the sacraments to come.

The Seven Catholic Sacraments

The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God’s saving presence. That’s what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God’s grace.

If you learn more about the sacraments, you can celebrate them more fully. To learn more about the individual sacraments, please follow the links below. You’ll find easy-to-understand articles and a good sample of common questions and answers.

Please pray for a friend who has been sent another precious baby from Heaven’s nursery. She recently miscarried in February and is delighted with this news! We pray to the Lord, Lord hear our prayer.
