Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church
Since 1907
The seven sacraments are rites of the Church that we take part in during our journey of faith. Each sacrament is another piece of that journey, strengthening our connection and commitment to the teachings of Jesus Christ. With each sacrament, we are further enriched with the grace and wisdom of God, and we further confirm our faith in Him.
