Baptism: A person becomes a Christian at Baptism.
This ancient practice commanded by Christ as
necessary for salvation brings us into the full
fellowship of his Body, the Church. At the Cathedral,
Holy Baptism is administered on the First Sunday
after the Epiphany, Easter Day, the Day of Pentecost,
and on All Saints' Sunday. Baptisms are celebrated at
regularly scheduled services on Sundays when the
congregation can witness and welcome the
Confirmation: The canon law of the Episcopal
Church expects its members to confirm their
Baptismal vows after receiving appropriate instruction
in theology, history and Holy Scriptures. Our sixth
grade Sunday School class gives this instruction to
young people. Adults are invited to attend the Dean's
classes on the six Saturday mornings of the Lenten
The Holy Eucharist: All Baptized persons are
welcome to receive the Sacramanet of Holy
Communion in the Episcopal Church. It is our
privilege to bring the Sacrament to sick and shut-ins
at their request.
Marriage: We consider Holy Matrimony a solemn
and public covenant between man and wife in the
presence of God. In this rite, the man and woman are
the Sacrament (the outward and visible forms). The
Church witnesses and blesses the marriage. Because
of the large number of persons who would use the
Cathedral for their marriage without concern for its
life of worship and fellowship, we limit marriage
services to members of the Cathedral in Good
Reconciliation of a Penitent: Private Confession is
offered to penitents whose consciences suffer from
the gravity of sin and who need the counsel as well
as the absolution of God given by a priest usually at
the altar rail and always in absolute confidence.
Burial of the Dead: The liturgy for the dead is an
Easter liturgy. It finds its meaning in the Resurrection
from the death of Jesus Christ. Christian burial
takes place in the church unless otherwise
determined by the officiant and the family.
