The Catholic Church defines seven specific occasions when the presence of a priest is required as an instrument of God's grace. They are Baptism, Confirmation, Confessions and Penance, Holy Communion (or the Eucharist), Ordination, Marriage, Extreme Unction. The photo of this English font shows the Extreme Unction in the centre, and Marriage to the right.
