SACRAMENTS

SACRAMENTS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

A Sacrament is an outward sign, instituted by Christ, to give grace.

The purpose of the Sacraments is to make people holy, to build up the Body of Christ

and finally, to give worship to God. Since Sacraments are signs, they also have a 

teaching function. The Sacraments nourish and strengthen our faith and they impart

grace. As we celebrate the Sacraments, we worship God and practice charity.

All the sacraments flow from the life and ministry of Jesus as recorded in the New

Testament. Jesus himself instituted all the sacraments (CCC 1114), either by explicit

command or by His work or teaching.
