Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist for Adults

Parishioners who want to have their child celebrate the sacrament of baptism
at St. Mary’s Cathedral should remember that:
  • They must be a registered, active, and contributing parishioners for at least three months at the Cathedral prior to the request (if you are not a registered member there is a 3-month waiting period);
  • The Godparents must be practicing Catholics who are confirmed and no younger than 16 years of age (one person may be a baptized Christian in another Christian denomination, but then is only a witness to the baptism);
  • They must take part in our Baptismal Preparation evening.
  • Dates for baptisms are not available by request but follow the schedule of St. Mary’s Cathedral.
If you are planning a baptism you must first call the office and fill out the appropriate forms.
Depending upon the circumstances you may need to speak with the parish Rector.


thought of the month

“Do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not your fountain of life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle? In the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need?”

— Our Lady of Guadalupe, to St. Juan Diego
