Sacraments are visible rituals that Catholics see as signs of God’s presence and channels of God’s grace to all those who receive them with the proper disposition.

The sacraments are often divided into the three categories of Initiation, Healing and Service.

  • Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist
  • Healing: Penance and the Anointing of the Sick
  • Service: Holy Orders and Matrimony
