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. Sacred Heart Parish strives to reflect this communal dimension both in our preparation and in our celebration of our sacraments.
