The Sacrament of Baptism
"Jesus answered, 'Amen, amen I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit'."
- John 3:5
Baptism is the first of the seven sacraments. It is called a Sacrament of Initiation because it is through baptism that we become full members of the Catholic Church.
Baptism for Catholics usually occur during infancy, but anyone who wants to become a member of the Catholic Church is welcome through the sacrament of baptism. If you think you are ready to take a step into Catholicism, please email Father Dan or reach out to any CCM members to learn about fall baptism on campus.
Father Dan will also be leading a Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults class in late September/early October.
The Sacrament of Confirmation
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come."
- 2 Corinthians 5:17
Confirmation is another sacrament of initiation, which seals the grace that we have after baptism. During confirmation, we are incorporated more firmly into Christ and our bonds with the Church is strengthened.
All Catholics who have been baptized are also welcome to join the RCIA class in late September/ early October. please email Father Dan or reach out to any CCM members to learn about fall confirmation on campus.
The Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist
"He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood shall have everlasting life; and I will raise him up in the last day."
- John 6:55
The Eucharist is the "source and summit of Christian life." It is during the Mass when Jesus Christ is really and physically present under the appearances of bread and wine.
