At Saints James and Patrick Parish, we enter into relationship with God through the sacraments, prayer, and stewardship. We invite you to Join Our Parish community so you can experience God's eternal love by 'remaining in Christ and revealing Christ to others'. 

The Bible and the Sacraments

'The Bible and the Sacraments' is part of the dynamic, best-selling Journey Through Scripture video series. This study examines the rich relationship between the Old and New Testaments by revealing the sacraments as more than mere earthly rituals. The goal of 'The Bible and the Sacraments' is to understand where the sacraments come from, what they mean, and why they are so important and foundational to our Catholic faith. You can complete this FREE study here.
