“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.
From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace, because while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. The only Son, God, who is at the Father’s side, has revealed him.”
Sacraments represent the life of the Church. They indicate to us the gifts that Christ has brought to us by His life, cross, and resurrection. They express the presence of the Spirit at work in all who believe.
At Immaculate Conception, we regard all of our Sacraments with the utmost honor. From regular Sacraments, such as the Eucharist and Confessions, to special moments such as Weddings and Baptisms, each Sacrament is a celebration of the life of the Church and a gift from God.
As we continue to add additional content to our new website in the days and weeks to come, you will soon be able to find additional information on each Sacrament: what it means, how to register, how to prepare, and ways you can follow up. In the meantime, please contact our Parish Office at 773.775.3833 for additional information.
In whatever Sacrament you are looking for, may the peace of God be with you!
