The whole liturgical life of the praying community of St. Viator revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. It is our privilege and joy to celebrate them with you.
In the Catechism of the Catholic Church we read at the beginning of Article 2, number 1113, The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation or Chrismation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony. Later we read in #1131, The sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required dispositions
