Sacraments are vital expressions of who we are as Catholic Christians. The Sacraments are outward signs of inward grace, instituted by Christ for our sanctification. Each time we receive a sacrament we respond in a deeper way to Jesus’ call to discipleship.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church lists the sacraments as follows:
