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.
