Sacramental Preparation

The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments… The purpose of the sacraments is to sanctify, to build up the Body of Christ and, finally, to give worship to God.- Catechism of the Catholic Church, nos. 1113 & 1123.

The sacramental life of the Church is full of inexhaustible riches signifying the love of God and the divine work of salvation.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us that "sacraments are 'powers that come forth' from the Body of Christ, which is ever-living and life-giving.  They are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church.  They are the 'masterworks of God' in the new and everlasting covenant" (#1116). 

The task of the parish is to introduce those seeking Christ to the sacramental life of the Church, integrate them into the faith life of the community, and to teach them how to live as committed disciples so that they can live out their baptismal mission.  Holy Family seeks to accomplish this through it's preparations for the sacraments.  To learn more about the preparation process of each of the sacraments, click on the links on the left of the page or contact the parish office.
