Liturgy and Sacrament

In Christian tradition, liturgy is understood as the participation of the People of God in “the work of God.” Through the liturgy, Christ continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through his Church. At its best, liturgy engages the faithful in the life of the community and involves the “conscious, active, and fruitful participation” of everyone.

The purpose of Sacraments is to make people holy, to build the body of Christ and to give worship to God. The word Sacrament means “sign” and while they presuppose faith; by words and action, they also serve to nourish, strengthen and express our faith.
There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Matrimony, and Holy Orders.
