"It is a commentary on the creeds, but is not meant to be a complete statement of belief and
practices; rather, it is a point of departure for the teacher" (Book of Common Prayer, p. 844). Offered in a question-and-answer
format, the Catechism found in the back of the Book of Common Prayer (pp. 845-862) helps teach the foundational truths of
the Christian faith. Outline for instruction in the Christian faith presented in a question and answer format. The Catechism
appears in the BCP as "An Outline of the Faith" (pp. 845-862). Although the Catechism serves as a commentary on
the creeds, it is not intended to be a complete statement of belief and practice. It provides a brief summary of the church's
teaching. The Catechism is intended to serve as a point of departure for discussion by the catechist (lay or ordained) with
those who seek to understand the beliefs and practices of the Episcopal Church. Source: http://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/catechism

"Sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward
and spiritual grace" (Book of Common Prayer, p. 857). Besides baptism and the Eucharist
(Holy Communion), the church recognizes other spiritual markers in our journey of faith. These include:
•Confirmation (the adult affirmation of our baptismal vows), pp. 413-419, Book of Common Prayer
•Reconciliation of a Penitent (private confession), pp. 447-452, Book of Common Prayer
marriage), pp. 422-438, Book of Common Prayer
•Orders (ordination to deacon, priest, or bishop), pp. 510-555,
Book of Common Prayer
•Unction (anointing with oil those who are sick or dying) pp. 453-467, Book of Common Prayer
These help us to be a sacramental people, seeing God always at work around us.
