1.      Baptism: is the sacrament through which we receive the grace of childhood to God by being baptized in water to be born of the Holy Spirit.

2.      Confirmation: is the sacrament through which we receive the seal of the Holy Spirit right after baptism by anointing with holy Myron.
(Acts 8:14-17; 1 John 2:20)

3.      Communion: is the sacrament through which we receive the consecrated body and blood of Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:23-25)

4.      Confession: is the sacrament by which we receive absolution of sin through the priest, repentance, and penance. (John 20:23)

5.      Priesthood: is the sacramental ordination of one by the laying on of hands to perform the sacramental rites and give the gifts of the sacraments. (Matthew 28:18-20)

6.      Matrimony: is the sacrament through which a man and a woman are joined in marriage into one. (Matthew 19:5-6; Ephesians 5:25-31)
