The Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church
Our community life at Christ the King Parish is best expressed in our understanding and celebration of the seven sacraments.
Sacraments say more about our God than they do about us. He cares for us from the cradle to the grave, binds our faith family together, despite our flaws and teaches us the sacredness of the created universe, which is the first “sacrament” of God’s existence and presence to us.
In Baptism, God welcomes us as sons and daughters into the Christian family, the Body of Christ on earth. Learn more about planning a baptism at Christ the King.
First Holy Communion
In the Eucharist, our God invites us to the family table, where the Risen Christ becomes the food that sustains us on the daily journey of our lives. Learn more about First Communion for your child.
In Confirmation, the Holy Spirit promises to be our strength, especially when the road of life gets rough. Learn more about the confirmation process for teens or adults
In Reconciliation, God speaks words of forgiveness and renewal through the Church’s chosen confessor. Private Confessions will continue every Saturday from 3pm to 3:30pm. Please meet in front of the church.
In Marriage, our faithful God of love invites committed couples to let their mutual love and fidelity serve as a sign of God’s passionate caring for all people, everywhere. Learn more about planning a wedding at Christ the King.
In Holy Orders, God calls some from among the community to be compassionate servant-leaders, who inspire others to live in Christ and make a difference in the world.
Anointing of the sick
In the Anointing of the Sick, God says, “Do not be afraid. I am with you to heal both body and spirit”; and, “I will be waiting for you at the end of your journey on earth.” Request an anointment.
