Sacraments

The sacramental life of the Church is crucial to our faith as Catholic Christians. Through the sacraments we experience God’s saving grace. “The purpose of the sacraments is to sanctify us, to build up the Body of Christ and, finally, to give worship to God. Because they are signs they also instruct. They not only presuppose faith, but by words and objects they also nourish, strengthen, and express it. That is why they are called ‘sacraments of faith.’” – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1154
