Jesus summed up the Ten Commandments in the Great Commandment, which teaches us that God’s laws are based on love of God and love of neighbor.
Jesus’ love is the perfect example of how to live. Our love for each other is a sign of Jesus’ love.
THE SACRAMENTS OF INITIATION
Confirmation strengthens the new life we received at Baptism and makes us living witnesses of Jesus in the world.

THE SACRAMENTS OF HEALING
Anointing of the Sick brings Jesus’ healing, comfort, and strength to those who are seriously ill, elderly, or in danger of death.
THE SACRAMENTS OF COMMITMENT OR VOCATION
Holy Orders ordains men to serve the Church as bishops, priests, or deacons.
MORE ABOUT THE EUCHARIST
The Eucharist is the central celebration of the Church and our greatest act of worship. Jesus taught that he is the Bread of Life. He promised to give his followers his Body and Blood so that they could live forever. Jesus fulfilled this promise at the Last Supper on the night before he died.
The Eucharist makes present Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross and his resurrection from the dead. The word Eucharist means “thanksgiving.” During the Mass we praise and thank God for all our gifts, especially the gift of God’s Son, Jesus.
Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. The Eucharist still has the appearance of ordinary bread and wine, but, through the power of the Holy Spirit, they become Jesus’ Body and Blood.
The Eucharist unites us with Jesus and the Church community. Jesus is also present in the people gathered to celebrate the Eucharist, in the word proclaimed, and in the priest who presides.
