Home Sacraments



Sacraments are outward signs of inward grace, instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ for our sanctification. Outward signs are the physical signs and actions exercised during the administration of a Sacrament. Human beings are embodied creatures, and for such reason, they can touch, taste and hear sound. They express their faith in terms of physical signs and actions (i.e, touching, tasting and hearing). For instance, the outward sign of the Sacrament of Baptism is pouring water over the head of the candidate and saying at the same time, “I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” By inward grace, we mean the love of God being experienced by the candidate through a Sacrament. As we experience each Sacrament, we experience God’s love, which is our sanctification.

Sacramentals are sacred signs which bear a resemblance to the Sacraments. This means that Sacramentals are also outward signs as the Sacraments, and are means by which we entrust our lives to God and seek His providence. The purpose of Sacramentals is to focus the devotion of the faithful. Sacramentals include blessings, incense, pilgrimages, the sign of the cross, holy images and statues, rosaries and other actions and objects.

The Catholic Church recognises seven Sacraments,

The Sacrament of Initiation

The Sacraments of Christian Initiation – Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist lay the foundations of every Christian life. By these Sacraments, the faithful are reborn in Christ, attain a high level of spirituality and are strengthened in the Holy Spirit and nourished with the food of eternal life.


The Sacrament of Baptism cleanses the faithful from Original sin – the sin of our first parents Adam and Eve [and all Actual sins in the case of adult Baptism], makes of the faithful God’s possession and admits to the mystical Body of Christ. The faithful are born anew by the Sacrament of Baptism.

  • Registration for Adult Baptism takes place during Catechism Classes on Saturdays by 4pm.
  • Registration for Infant Baptism takes place in the Parish Office.


The Sacrament of Confirmation bestows the faithful the Holy Spirit and makes of one a soldier of and an ambassador for Christ. The Sacrament of Confirmation completes the grace of baptism and perfectly bounds the baptised to the Church, and enriches him with a special strength of the Holy Spirit to defend and spread the faith through word and deed.


  • Registration for the Sacrament of Confirmation takes place during Catechism Classes on Saturdays by 4pm. The Sacrament is ONLY for the faithful who are 12years and above.

Holy Eucharist

The Holy Eucharist is the true Body and Blood of Christ and completes Christian initiation. The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. This means that all other Sacraments and indeed works of the apostolate are bound with the Eucharist and are geared towards it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained Christ himself.


  • Registration for the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist [First Holy Communion] takes place during Catechism Classes on Saturdays by 4pm. The Sacrament is for the faithful who are 8years and above.

The Sacrament of Healing

Our life existence on earth is subject to suffering, illness and death. Also, our new life in Christ through the Sacraments of Initiation can be weakened and even lost to sin. The Sacraments of Healing – Penance and Anointing of the Sick grant us both physical and spiritual healings while on earth and at the hour of death and restores the faithful to the grace of the other Sacraments.

Penance and Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation grants pardon from God on the faithful for sins [Actual sins] committed against Him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church. The Sacrament of Penance is also called the following:

  • Sacrament of Conversion because it makes sacramentally present Jesus’ call to conversion.
  • Sacrament of Penance because it consecrates the Christian sinner’s personal and ecclesial steps of conversion/contrition, penance/confession and satisfaction.
  • Sacrament of confession because the disclosure of sins to a priest is an essential element that acknowledges and praises the holiness and mercy of God towards sinful world.
  • Sacrament of forgiveness because by the priest’s sacramental absolution, God grants the penitent pardon and peace.
  • Sacrament of Reconciliation because it imparts to the sinner the love of God who reconciles.

To partake in the Sacrament of Penance, the faithful must have received the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist [First Holy Communion].

Anointing of the Sick

The sacred Anointing of the Sick accompanied by the prayer of the priests offers healing – physical and spiritual to the faithful especially when in danger of death by illness. The Sacrament comforts and strengthens the soul, forgives sins and restores health, if God finds it fitting.

Kindly complete the Anointing of the Sick form.

The Sacrament of Service

The Sacrament of Service – Holy Orders and Matrimony enable the faithful to direct their lives for the salvation of others. Through service to others, the faithful build up the Body of Christ.  The faithful are as well being saved in the process, by their participation in the saving mission of Christ.

Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders confers the faithful with the power of the Priesthood—offering sacrifice to God for the sins of the people. Those who receive the Sacrament of Holy Orders are consecrated in Christ’s name “to feed the Church by the word and grace of God.”
