Receiving the Sacraments
Each of the seven sacraments instituted by Christ is an outward sign of an inward grace. Through the sacraments we are given the graces necessary to truly live for and with God. Find the sacrament you need to receive.

Baptism is the passage into God's own family. Whatever the age of the soul here on earth, the church always welcomes you.

As children of God, Confirmation allows us to receive the Holy Spirit so we can go forth as Jesus commanded us, to teach others and call them to the church.

Anointing of the Sick
"Is any among you sick? Let him call for the (presbyters) of the Church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven."
-St. James 5:14
For those wishing to receive this sacrament, they should call Fr. Todd to arrange the details.
"Thus the risen Christ, by giving the Holy Spirit to the apostles, entrusted to them his power of sanctifying: they became sacramental signs of Christ. By the power of same Holy Spirit they entrusted this power to their successors. This "apostolic succession" structures the whole liturgical life of the Church and is itself sacramental, handed on by the sacrament of Holy Orders."
