The Catholic community of Columbus, Ohio is a vibrant and active group of believers who celebrate the seven sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ. These sacraments are the main way for members of the faith to participate in their religion and grow closer to God. Through these liturgies, the Holy Spirit works within us to make us more like Jesus, whose selfless love for us is expressed through the Father's absolute and perfect love. Those who wish to join the Catholic Church through Confirmation and the Eucharist must first be baptized in a Christian tradition.
Adults or older children who were baptized in another Christian denomination also prepare for these sacraments during their reception at the Catholic Church.
