And I tell you, you are Peter,
and on this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,
and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
~ Matthew 16:18-19 (NRSV)

Sacraments of Initiation
Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation are the sacraments of initiation. The sacraments enter us into full membership in the community of believers.
Through Baptism we enter into the dying and rising of Jesus. We leave behind the old self and take on the life of a follower of Jesus Christ.
With the Eucharist, we receive the Body and Blood of the Lord and we accept the challenge to do for one another what Jesus did for us, namely to lay down our lives in Christian service.
Confirmation seals us with the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Sacraments of Healing
During His earthly life, Jesus gave his followers and the Church the example of healing and forgiveness of sins. The Anointing of the Sick and Confession are the sacraments which celebrate this healing ministry of Jesus.
