SACRAMENTS

BAPTISM

BAPTISM is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word” (Roman Catechism II).

Reconciliation

Through penance, the faithful receive pardon for the sins they have committed and are reconciled with the Church community.

Every parishioner is encouraged to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for the two major feasts of the liturgical year, namely, Christmas and Easter. During the liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent (a time of preparation for these feasts) special reconciliation services are scheduled for all parishioners.

The sacrament of Reconciliation takes place on Fridays 7:15 pm – 8:15 pm and again on Saturdays 8:30 am – 9:30 am in the Small Gallery.

Eucharist

“At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood…a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled grace, and a pledge of future glories is given to us“ (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Part II, Article 3).

Christ Cathedral Parish offers Eucharist preparation programs for both children and adults. Please contact parish staff for information and registration:
