Religious  Education“There is much more to the Christian belief in the sacraments than a brief definition of what we mean by a sacrament and a list of the seven acts of faith that fulfill the definition. The whole life of the Church takes place in and through the sacraments of the New Covenant. Without the sacraments there would be no Church, no Christian community, no direct, certain contact with the healing and sanctifying power of almighty God.” – Father Kenneth Baker, S.J. Fundamentals of Catholicism

The following pages on our website list information on the 7 sacraments of the Catholic Church as they are celebrated here at St. Mary and in the Diocese of Lansing. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church says – “The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments in life: they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith.” (CCC 1211) If you cannot find the information you are looking for please contact us.
