The Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is the second sacrament of initiation in the Catholic Church, and it is the one sacrament of initiation that we can receive more than once. In this sacrament, we receive the Body and Blood of Christ under the forms of bread and wine. Through this sacrament, God gives us His grace, and forms us more closely into the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church.
The Sacrament of Confirmation completes our initiation into the Church, making us full members of the Church. This special, “once-in-a-lifetime” sacrament is meant to deepen our relationship with Christ and his Church and to celebrate the presence and action of the Holy Spirit within us and within the Church.
Reconciliation / Sacramental Forgiveness
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.
