Encountering Christ in His Church

The Seven Sacraments

Encountering Christ in His Church

"All the sacraments have a deifying purpose: Baptism introduces the Divine Life into us. Confession restores it when it’s lost through sin. Confirmation strengthens it. Matrimony and Holy Orders give it vocational direction. Anointing of the Sick prepares us for the transition to our heavenly homeland. And the Eucharist is meant to Christify us." — Bishop Robert Baron

The sacraments are the way in which Christ confers to our souls sanctifying grace, that is, grace which truly makes our hearts holy and more like Christ's own heart. They are visible signs of God's invisible grace. Effecting what they signify, the Church faithfully performs the signs instituted by Christ in order to work His saving help in our life. Find more information below on each sacrament and participating with us in the sacraments at St. Mark Church.
