Sacramental Preparation

Saturday, October 18, 2014 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM







Course #701Sacramental Preparation.  "The Sacraments are perceptible signs (words and actions) accessible to our human nature. By the action of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit they make present efficaciously the grace that they signify."  This quote from the Catechism of the Catholic Church (n.1084) describes the sacraments as tangible ways in which God reaches out to mankind to show His love. This course prepares catechists to teach and prepare children and adults to receive the Sacraments of Initiation. 

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the theology of the Sacraments of Initiation and Healing
  • Reflect on the sacraments as encounters with Christ
  • Understand the sacraments as tangible ways in which God reaches out to humankind to share His divine nature
  • Explain how Jesus is the Sacrament of God and the Church is the Sacrament of Christ
  • Use sacramental resources for a more effective catechesis
  • Identify scriptural references for every sacrament
  • Explain signs and symbols used during sacramental rites
  • Understand the role of the community during the preparation and celebration of the sacraments
  • Develop ways in which parents can assist in preparing their children for reception of the sacraments


This is an advanced elective in Methodology and Skills. See the Continuing Faith Formation chart.
