Sacraments

A sacrament is an outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace. In the 12th century, the tally of seven sacraments achieved acceptance. Sacraments are a means by which the nature and structure of the church are brought into operation.

The seven sacraments are baptism, confirmation, Eucharist, reconcilliation, annointing of the sick, marriage and holy orders.
