The Seven sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required dispositions. what it means actually is that the sacraments, these specific events in our journey of faith, are special moments in which our Lord Jesus has the chance to enter our lives in special ways.
Each year St Joseph’s the Worker Parish offers children, around the age of eight years and above, an opportunity to prepare to receive Reconciliation and Holy Communion, the Eucharist, ‘the source and summit of the Christian life, to which the ‘other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are oriented.’ Children who are the age of 14 years and above get an opportunity to prepare to receive the sacrament of confirmation and those at age of eight years and above have an opportunity to prepare for Christian initiation of adults (RCIA). in principal, Saturday and Sunday are set aside in our parish for spiritual preparation for Sunday. sometimes we offer confession at different centers during their recollection and during moments of adoration.
