Sacraments are not private between God and us. They are bestowed upon us in and through the Church. We are the Church: we are the members, Christ is the head. All of the sacraments have an ecclesial (communal) aspect to them.

This communal aspect is frequently overlooked when we plan to celebrate a sacrament, yet it is perhaps the most important aspect of the sacraments. We receive sacraments in order to live holy lives in the community of the Church. Our Tri-Community strives to reflect this communal dimension both in our preparation and in our celebration of our sacraments.
