Sacraments

The Seven Catholic Sacraments are:

Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist (Holy Communion)
Sacraments of Healing: Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick
Sacraments of Service: Marriage, Holy Orders 

The Latin word sacramentum means "a sign of the sacred." The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence. That's what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God's grace.
