The Rays of Light

Coming from Christ they radiate through the members of the parish who, as missionary disciples, are reaching out with joy and compassion bringing the Light of Christ to the world.

Sacraments

Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion,Reconciliation, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life:1 they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.
