Sacraments are outward signs of inward grace, instituted by Christ for our sanctification. They are also called Sacraments of Grace.
While "cradle Catholics" will ordinarily receive the sacraments of initiation (baptism, holy communion, and confirmation) in the course of their ordinary life and education, those entering the church later may receive one or more of these through a program called Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or Rite of Christian Initiation of Childern for older children.
The Sacraments of Grace fall into three classes
Sacraments of Initiation
Adults and children over the age of 7 - See Becoming Catholic
Baptism Infants and young children - see Your Child's Baptism
Holy Communion - see Religous Formation
Confirmation - see Religous Formation
Sacraments of Service
Sacraments of Healing
