Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also called Penance or Confession) is a gift to help us reconcile with God and the Church when we have damaged our  relationship s with God and our community through our sins.  Through the Sacrament, we acknowledge our sins, express our sorrow, receive forgiveness from Christ and the Church, and try to make reparation for what we have done and resolve to do better in the future.

Sacrament of Marriage

Anointing of the Sick

The anointing of the sick is a sacramental rite. A person is anointed to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an emotional, physical, or psychological illness. In the sacrament, we pray that the sick be healed in body, in soul and in spirit. God alone knows what kind of healing the sick need most: that a wound be healed; that a fear turn to confidence; that loneliness be embraced by the support of a praying community; that confusion in the face of all the whys—why me, why suffering, why now—turn to insight. The Sacrament of Anointing does not remove the mystery of human suffering. Yet its celebration gives us a window into the mystery of our loving God.
