Deadline to declare intention: Sunday, October 28th, 2018

Young adults ages 13, 14, 15, or 16 are invited to discern with their parents and clergy persons about their readiness to enter the Catechumenate, a traditional preparation program for Confirmation, Reception, or Baptism.

The Catechumenate at the Cathedral involves a three-part intergenerational class offered in Advent, Lent, and Eastertide. Study in the Catechumenate will lead to Confirmation at the Easter Vigil in the Cathedral on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 7:30 PM.

The requirements for young adults to enter the Catechumenate are:

  • A written letter from the aspiring catechumen addressed to Father Michael Delaney, Canon Pastor, declaring intent to make an adult profession of faith at Confirmation and to select a ministry within the church
  • A formal meeting with a member of the Cathedral Clergy for both parents and the young person to discuss the process and discern readiness
  • An identified adult sponsor who will attend Catechumenate classes and guide the discerning young person in exploring their spiritual life

The deadline for declaring your intention to enter the Catechumenate for the 2018-2019 is Sunday, October 28, 2018. All letters must be received and clergy meetings scheduled by this date to ensure a space at the Easter Vigil on April 20, 2019.

To begin the process of discerning for the Catechumenate, please contact Rev. Morgan Mercer Ladd at
