Sacraments

Sacramentum: "a sign of the sacred"

SacramentsThe whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. (CCC 1113)

While we believe that human life is infused with the sacramental goodness of God, the Catholic Church has defined seven sacraments - instituted by and through the life of Jesus Christ. It is through the experience of the sacramental ritual that we are infused with God’s grace. The Sacraments nourish and strengthen us as they express and build up our faith.

At St. Anthony de Padua, our goal is to provide opportunities for Catholics of all ages to receive the sacraments through family oriented preparation programs and we auspiciously makes the following sacraments available to all who are interested:
