Sacraments

*Eventually, there will be resources for families on all 7 Sacraments of the Catholic Church. For now, here are resources for those preparing to receive the Sacraments of Penance/Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. 

The Sacraments
There are seven Sacraments in the Catholic Church. "[They] touch all the stages and all of the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith" (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1210). 
The Seven Sacraments are: 
  • Baptism
  • Confirmation
  • Eucharist
  • Penance
  • Anointing of the Sick
  • Holy Orders
  • Matrimony 
Reconciliation/Penance
