Here at Holy Trinity, we do not consider our God to be remote, inaccessible, and unconcerned with us. God is in solidarity with us and acts in our lives for our health, welfare, and salvation. The Church ritualizes this engagement of God with sacraments and blessings that communicate the inward and spiritual grace with which God blesses us. These outward and visible signs are sure and certain means by which God's grace is given. These signs are Sacraments, ritual acts of the church which express the mystical connection between God and God's people. Jesus Christ instituted two Sacraments: Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist.
Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit other Sacramental Rites and Blessings were developed for the strengthening of the faithful and the nurture of the Church. These differ from sacraments principally in that they are not necessary for all persons in the same way that Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist are.
