Sacraments and Pastoral Offices


The Sacraments mark the different stages of our (spiritual) lives through symbol and ritual.  In Anglicanism there are two Sacraments – that of Baptism (joining/ belonging) and that of the Eucharist (participating). At St Catherine’s these are carried out according to the Rites of the Church of England, using its liturgy. Background information can be found on the Church of England website.

Pastoral Offices:

These mark key points in life – birth and death  – and the many steps along the way.
They may also be called on at a time of crisis.
