Session One: We will explore the sacramentality of creation and of the human person through the Genesis Creation stories. The discussion will then lead to explore the role of sin, salvation in Christ as the primordial sacrament and the Church as the basic sacrament and the role of the seven sacraments.

Session Two:
The sacraments of Christian initiation will be explored: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist: the history, the relationship between the three sacraments and the re-contextualised and pastoral approach for the 21st century.

Session Three:
 The discussion on the sacraments of Christian initiation will be continued and then we will explore the theological, liturgical and pastoral approach to the sacrament of Reconciliation. Finally, we will concluding by exploring the missionary dimension of the Eucharist, sending us out “to glorify the Lord with our lives”.
