The Latin word sacramentum means "a sign of the sacred." The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence. That's what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God's grace.
If you learn more about the sacraments, you can celebrate them more fully. There are seven sacraments in the Armenian Church. The seven sacraments are:
Christmation (or Confirmation)
Penance (or Penitence)
Marriage (or Holy Matrimony)
Ordination (or Holy Orders)
Anointing of the Sick
