Sacraments are signs of God’s grace at work in our lives, but even more importantly, they actually bring us the grace that they signify. The washing of Baptism actually washes our soul clean of sin, the vows of Matrimony actually join the man and the woman to one another, and so on. Come celebrate the Sacraments at St. John Nepomucene.
