Sacraments are an outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace. In the Catholic Church we have 7 sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Anointing of the Sick. Look below to learn more.
“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.”
-Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained’” (John 20:21-23).
Reconciliation is offered every Saturday

It is specifically designed for those 18 and older who have never been baptized, those who were baptized in other recognized Christian denominations, and adults who were baptized as Catholics, but have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
