The sacraments nourish, strengthen and express our faith while building the body of Christ and giving worship to God.
The liturgical life of the Catholic Church revolves around the sacraments: Baptism, Penance (or Reconciliation), Eucharist, Confirmation, Anointing of the Sick, Matrimony, and Holy Orders. Instituted by Christ, they are necessary for our salvation.
At Christ Cathedral, you can begin your faith journey or continue to nurture your faith through myriad of religious education offerings. There is something for everyone. We invite you to learn about the many ways you can become a fully initiated Catholic, no matter your age or position in life.More About Faith Formation
