Celebrating God's Mighty Works:
The life of St. Joseph’s Parish centres on the celebration of the Sacraments.
As Catholics, we are often called "a sacramental people", for we see in the goodness of creation the hand of God and we celebrate that through the goodness of nature: water, oil, bread, wine and the hands of others.
Throughout our lives as Christians, we celebrate the power of God in our lives through the life-giving actions we call Sacraments. The Seven Sacraments celebrate Initiation into God's Life (Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist), God's Call (Marriage and Holy Orders)
and God's Healing (Confession and Anointing of the Sick).
The history of Salvation is that of the restoration of communion with God and the transformation of humanity after the catastrophic rift caused through mankind's sin and fall from grace. Jesus Christ as the Second Adam comes to our rescue through His becoming Flesh, His suffering, His death on the Cross and His Glorious Resurrection. Jesus gave humanity the Church and her Sacraments as the means of salvation. Through the Sacraments humanity gains far more than was lost in the Fall and becomes incorporated into the very life of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
"How great is Your Name O Lord Our God through all the earth! You have made man little less than God; with glory and honour You crowned him!" (Psalm 8)
