The Parish of St. Gabriel & All the Angels with St. John the Baptist

Receiving the Sacraments

The Sacraments of the Catholic Church are visible rites which mark significant points in the development of our faith, both individually and collectively. There are seven sacraments, which can be divided into three main categories:


Sacraments of Initiation into the Church:

Baptism; Confirmation; the Eucharist (Holy Communion)


Sacraments of Healing:

Penance (Reconciliation); Anointing of the Sick


Sacraments of Service:

Marriage; Ordination (Holy Orders)


If you would like more information about the pathways towards receiving any of the Sacraments, either for yourself or another party, please click on the highlighted name of the relevant Sacrament.
