Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony. the seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life:1 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.

 

Cathechism of the Catholic Church , 1210

 

 

The seven sacraments can be drawn together in three categories:

 

  • Sacraments of Initiation - Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist
  • Sacraments of Healing - Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick
  • Sacraments of Vocation - Marriage and Holy Orders

 

For adults, Sacraments of Initiation are to be celebrated at the same time at the Easter Vigil. The preparation and celebration of these sacraments is known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. If you are interested in becoming Catholic, we can help you.
