Baptisms and  Marriage

Baptism in the Anglican Church

Baptism holds significant spiritual importance in the Anglican Church, as it is considered one of the central sacraments and a foundational rite of initiation into the Christian faith. 

Whether administered to infants or adults, baptism is seen as an essential and transformative act that marks the beginning of a person's Christian life. The spiritual significance of baptism is deeply embedded in the Church's liturgical practices, theological understanding, and the communal life of believers.

Marriage in the Anglican Church

The spiritual significance of marriage in the Anglican Church is rooted in theological principles and reflects the understanding of marriage as a sacred covenant between two people. The marriage vows are seen as a commitment made before God and the community to love, honour, and cherish one another. 

In November of 2022, a majority of the congregation at Christ Church Cataraqui voted in favour to perform same-sex marriages at our church. This request was received and permission granted by The Right Reverend Michael Oulton, Bishop of The Diocese of Ontario.
