These are articles written by the Office of Evangelization staff on the sacraments of the Catholic Church, exploring the depths of their meaning, history, and above all the impact they have on each of us in our daily faith lives. This series takes its root from the OEC theme for 2022-2023 – “A Path to Renewal Through the Sacrament of Baptism: The Beginning is Now.” This is a response to the call to action from our Synodal reflections on Communion, Participation and Mission.
