Church Sacraments

The Catholic Church teaches that the sacraments are outward signs of inward grace, instituted by Christ for our sanctification. The Sacramental Life of the Church is central to our Catholic Faith and at St. Olaf we are privileged to welcome people from far and wide who join our parish community to share in our faith and join us in prayer and worship.
