Since the beginning of Christianity, the Church as a community has recognized and celebrated in a public way those important moments throughout our lives when God is present to us, individually and communally. We are called to renew our understanding and participation in these defining moments of our faith journey that are called the sacraments.

The Church has seven important occasions to celebrate when God and his people interact in a special way through not only words but also symbolic action. The symbols, referred to often as “outward signs,” and their related actions help us to express those deep divine and human realities of life, love, death and joy in our life.
