The Sacrament of Baptism is the basis of our spiritual Christian life. It is the doorway to the other Sacraments. In Baptism, we are absolved of original sin and reborn as children of God and welcomed into our spiritual family of the Church.
Through the celebration of the Eucharist we express our unity with the Church. The sacrament symbolises the new covenant given to us by God with the promise of eternal life. Jesus said, 'Take, eat, this is my body. Take, drink, this is my blood. Do this in my memory'.
Through the Sacrament of Reconciliation we ask for God's forgiveness and grace for our sins committed after Baptism. We express our sincere sorrow for our sins and the offense committed against Him. By our act of contrition we are reconciled with the Church and with God.
Through the Sacrament of Confirmation we are enriched with the strength of the Holy Spirit to act as witnesses of Christ. While Baptism welcomes us into the family of God, Confirmation requires of us to take personal responsibility to defend by word and deed our faith.
Matrimony is raised by Jesus to the dignity of sacrament whereby a couple establish themselves as a partnership in the Catholic community.

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick confers God's grace and peace on those who are suffering in mind and body.
