    • Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law

      The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.

      Sacraments are "powers that comes forth" from the Body of Christ, which is ever–living and life–giving. They are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church. They are “the masterworks of God” in the new and everlasting covenant.
      Catechism of The Catholic Church #1116

    • Penance

      At Annunciation, Confession is heard 15 minutes before every Mass or by appointment

      Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.
      Catechism of The Catholic Church #1422
    • Baptism

      Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua) and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.
      Catechism of The Catholic Church #1213

    • Matrimony

      The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament”"
