Sacraments

"Christ instituted the sacraments. There are seven: Baptism, confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony."

"The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith. There is thus a resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life."

(Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1210)
