The great Christmas hymn, "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing" contains the line, "veiled in flesh, the Godhead see." What we discover as we get involved with God is that when God reveals himself, he must veil himself.

We may recognize God with us in innumerable ways, all the time. God is free to surprise us with glimpses of glory and gifts of his grace whenever and wherever God chooses.

But God has also given the Church sure and certain means by which we may receive his grace, mercy, and unmerited blessing in ways both wonderful and mysterious. We call these "sacraments" (derived from the ancient word for mystery).

At Christ Church, in continuity with our ancient faith, we recognize seven sacraments - Baptism, Holy Eucharist (or Communion), Confirmation, Reconciliation (or Confession), Holy Matrimony, Unction (anointing with holy oil for healing), and Ordination.
