Online Catholic Sacramental Preparation
The Sacraments Are Life Changing
Congratulations! Whether you are studying for your own Sacraments or looking for classes for your child, godchild, fiance, spouse, or friend, we are here to help! To those who are looking to receive the Sacraments, you take a very important step forward with your own religious education by seeking the Sacraments. The Sacraments were instituted by Jesus Christ Himself as the primary means to receive His grace. Baptism is absolutely necessary for salvation. Confirmation completes the Sacramental anointing of Baptism and neglecting it without good reason is a mortal sin. The Sacraments give life to the soul. The same is true for Holy Communion, which is our Lord's True Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, since without receiving Him in Holy Communion, we have no life in us, as our Lord Himself has said.
