Rev. Cate Ratcliffe

Hailing from St. Margaret's Bay, Rev. Cate Ratcliffe started working as the new minister in St. Peter's Anglican Church (Eastern Passage) and Christ Church (Cow Bay) on August 1st, 2017. She feels truly blessed to have such a wonderful congregation, in such a beautiful community to boot! She has spent this past year getting to know the people and the community, so if you see her out and about, please don't hesitate to introduce yourself or say hi!


Cate graduated in May 2017 from the Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax with her Master of Divinity, and before that received her Bachelor of Arts from Mount Allison in Sackville, NB. She has had a passion for singing, dancing, and acting for longer than she can remember, and has been performing onstage since she was 4. When not in church or onstage, Cate tends to be found reading, knitting, learning guitar, or spending time with friends, usually all while juggling a cup (or two!) of tea.
