Why Water, Bread, Oil, Light & a White Cloth?

Have you ever wondered about the significance of some of the ‘stuff’ we use in the Sacraments?  Things like water, oil, light, a white cloth and bread? Why do we use those particular items? How are they used differently in the different Sacraments? Youth went to 5 different stations in our classes on November 20 & 21 to experience these sacramental and explore the answers to these questions. Click each item in the list below if you would like to see some of what we learned.

If your child missed this class, pick at least one of the items listed below, brainstorm together all the ways this item is used in ordinary life, discuss the ways you have seen it used in church, and then click on the item in the list below for what we read in class.
