Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ.  Persons of any age are able to be baptized.


Confirmation and Reception

Those baptized at an early age may make a mature public affirmation of their baptism through the

rite of confirmation. Those who have made such an affirmation in another Christian tradition may

be received as members of the Episcopal Church. Both confirmation and reception include prayer

and the laying on of hands by the bishop.



A wedding celebrated at the cathedral is an affirmation of a couple’s commitment to each other

and to God through Jesus Christ.

Remarriage of the divorced is permitted with the consent of the

bishop. Weddings are open to both same and opposite sex couples. The planning and celebration

of weddings is undertaken in consultation with the clergy.



It is an honor for our cathedral staff to help plan a funeral or memorial service in a time of loss.

Please contact the cathedral office [LINK mailto:] to inquire

about these services.
