The Sacraments are visible, tangible signs of God’s grace in our lives. God created us as physical beings and he desires to share his love and mercy with us in a way that is experiential, not just spiritual. So God comes to us through these holy Sacraments not just to engage our hearts, our minds, and our souls, but also our physical senses... We see the beauty of a Marriage ceremony; We feel the cleansing waters of Baptism; We smell the aroma of the chrism oil at Confirmation; We taste the bread which conceals Christ in the Eucharist; We hear the words of absolution during Reconciliation.
The Sacraments have both a visible and invisible reality – a reality open to all the human senses but only fully understood with the eyes of faith. When parents hug their children, for example, the visible reality we see is the hug. The invisible reality the hug conveys is love. We cannot "see" the love the hug expresses, though sometimes we can see its nurturing effect in the child.
It is the same with God's grace in us.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, the Church recognizes the existence of Seven Sacraments instituted by Jesus.
The Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist)
The Sacraments of Healing (Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick)
The Sacraments at the Service of Communion (Marriage and Holy Orders)
Through the Sacraments, God shares his grace and holiness with us so that we, in turn, can make the world holier. To learn more about the Sacraments or how to prepare for them, contact our Pastor,

Our Religious Education programs join with the parents, who we consider to be primary educators of their children, in helping our youth to know and understand their Catholic Faith. We nourish a sense of belonging in each student, so that they and their families will have a greater sense of community and of being both needed and nourished within the Saint Paul's Parish Family.
THE GOALS OF THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAMS:
To enhance the faith that is rooted in our Baptism and shared in our community;
To provide religious formation consistent with the basic traditions and teachings of the church;
To provide the opportunity to experience the rich Sacramental life of the church;
To build community within our parish family
To involve our families in the mission of the church by answering God’s call to prayer and service;
To support the parent’s role as primary educators of their children by reinforcing basic beliefs & providing opportunities for future growth.
