Sacraments

The Christian Community is anchored in the spiritual world by the seven sacraments in a renewed form. Like a window allowing the light to shine into a house, the sacraments make it possible for the spirit of Christ to cross the threshold separating the super-sensible and sense perceptible worlds, illuminating and blessing the lives of human beings.


The Consecration of the Human Being 

is the heart of sacramental life. It is a renewal of the archetypal form of early Christian worship, the Eucharist.

Baptism 

receives the child into the religious community, represented particularly by the godparents. It brings Christ’s power of growth and transformation into the soul and body of the incarnating child.

Confirmation 

takes place at the age of 14, as a rite of passage bringing Christ’s light and strength to young human beings as they are blessed by wonders and burdens of puberty and begin to seek their own path into life.

Sacrament of Reconciliation (renewed Confession) - by request and confidential 

is religious counseling for one’s life destiny which provides support in times of crisis and transitions.

The Last Anointing

 gives an individual spiritual strength at the threshold between the world of earth and heaven.

Sacrament of Ordination 

The sacraments are performed by a priest through the power conferred by the Sacrament of Ordination. From its beginning, the Christian Community has ordained both men and women.

Marriage 

blesses the resolve of a man and woman to share community of life, supported by two chosen witnesses who represent the community and its intention to accompany, support and bless what two free individuals resolve.
