Faith Formation & Sacraments

An Introduction to Faith Formation and Sacraments

As Catholics we believe that God is involved in our world and in our lives. God is not distant and removed from human life.

We believe that God touches us in a special way through the Church, especially when the Church gathers in prayer to hear the Word of God in the Scriptures and to witness the action of God in the Sacraments.

Here at OLC, we give special care and attention to the way we proclaim and preach the Word of God and to the way in which we celebrate the Sacraments of the Church.

The Sacraments, namely, Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Marriage, and Holy Orders are not things we receive, but rather moments in which God touches us in a special way and continues transforming us into God’s Holy People, God’s Holy Church.

At OLC we joyfully celebrate the Sacraments with all those who are members of our parish community.
