Baptism is the first sacrament and the gateway to the others. Through it we become part of the Church, the Body of Christ.
First Holy Communion
The Eucharist (Holy Communion) completes Initiation and is food for our life in union with Christ.
Confirmation is the second "Sacrament of Initiation". By it we receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Marriage is the vocation of most Christians and very important in both Church and Society. The sacrament is ministered by the couple to each other in the presence of a priest or deacon and gives grace for lifelong loving fidelity and parenthood.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, prepares adults to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, First Holy Communion and integrate them into the local Catholic Church community. This is done through weekly teaching, discussion and prayer.
