SACRAMENTS

St. Patrick parish is working toward building a strong, complete and organized Sacramental program for ALL parishioners, with the hope that they experience the power of grace in their lives while understanding the integrity, beauty, and truths of our Catholic Faith.
Sacraments are "outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace."

Sacraments are signs of God's grace in our lives - opening us to the presence of God in the world and in ourselves. Catholics have seven Sacraments that we believe were instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church for God's people.

Three Sacraments are initiation sacraments through which individuals are welcomed into the faith of Christ. These Sacraments are Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.

Two Sacraments are strengthening and renewing; Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick.

Two Sacraments recognize the special call that some members of the community have for particular service; Marriage and Holy Orders.
Currently in our PSR system, First Communion/First Reconciliation preparation is handled in both first and second grade PSR.
Similarly Confirmation preparation is part of 8th grade PSR.
If you are interested in enrolling your child in the preparation classes for First Communion/First Reconciliation or Confirmation, please return to the main menu and click on the PSR TAB.
If you wish to know more about any or all of the Sacraments please call the Parish Office @ 216-251-1200.
