Sacramentality and Sacraments

Sacramentality implies having a sense of the holy and it involves an openness to participation in the sacraments.

It means that members of the Iona College community find engagement in the formal rituals of the Catholic Church which can enhance their faith and life experience.

The sacraments themselves are perceptible signs (words, actions and rituals) that can touch our human nature, engaging believers in the grace of God through the action of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.

The sacraments people are most likely to encounter at Iona are the Eucharist (Mass) and Penance (Reconciliation). In fact, the Eucharist, which is Christ’s gift of himself to each of us, is central to the daily life of Iona College.

Sacramental preparation usually occurs within a parish setting, however Iona is keen to assist with all enquiries.
