The sacraments are very important, particularly in the Eucharist, in which we receive the Body and the Blood of Christ. This may also represent the priesthood of St Dunstan and the chalices he used to make.

The Tongs – A Symbol of St Dunstan reflecting his role as a metalsmith.
O, magnify His name,
Before His throne be praises sung,
With hymns His power proclaim.
He whom the sun and stars obey,
Who made the earth so fair,
Gives grace and strength for every day
With anvil, hammer, vice and wrench,
St Dunstan toiled by day,
At Blacksmith’s forge and workmen’s bench,
To labour was to pray.
By night within his quiet cell,
With artist’s brush and pen,
He wrote the sacred page to tell
Of God’s great love to men.
St Dunstan’s school hold dear,
With love unfeigned and purpose deep,
With mind and conscience clear.
Let us, like him, with brain and hand
Serve God through all our days,
Nor cease at duty’s post to stand,
His banner high to raise.
