What are the Sacraments Dignity celebrates?

The most frequently received sacrament is the last of the so-called "Sacraments of Initiation" — Eucharist. Our Sunday liturgies offer all believing, baptized Christians the eucharistic feast at the Table. The first two Initiation Sacraments are Baptism and Confirmation. Dignity also validly provides those sacraments or facilitates the reception of those sacraments depending upon individual needs and circumstances. Dignity also offers twice yearly the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Penance) but it is always available upon request from our Priests. We also offer monthly at the 4:30 liturgy the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick which is no longer restricted to those near immediate death. It is also available by request. Dignity also provides couples with the rites of Holy Union, which may or may not be characterized as sacramental depending upon each couple’s discernment. Finally, the community has supported members in their discernment of priestly vocation and reception of the Sacrament of Holy Orders.
