Celebrating the Sacraments

Jesus reveals himself to us through his Holy Sacraments. As human beings, we need to be able to touch, smell, see and hear in order to understand that which we receive. Our Lord comes to us through oil, water, bread, wine and human touch. As a family of families, St. Mary Parish wants to celebrate these milestones of grace with you.

The seven Holy Sacraments are Baptism, Reconciliation, Confirmation, the Eucharist, the Anointing of the Sick, Matrimony and Holy Orders. These seven sacraments touch all of the stages and important moments of Christian life. The stages of the spiritual life thus resemble the natural stages of a Christian’s earthly life.
