Life Events

For over 130 years the Cathedral has served as a place of witness and worship as the community joins together during moments of significance in the lives of its members.


The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is the essential event in Christian initiation. By water and the Holy Spirit, your child will be brought into Christ’s Body, the Church, and will then require nurturing within this Family. Learn more about Baptisms


Confirmation is an important step in the spiritual development of all Episcopalians. It is a mature, public affirmation of our faith. Candidates for confirmation should receive at least one academic year of preparation. Learn more about Confirmations


Our sacred space has been the setting for splendid weddings since 1885, and our hope is that you will choose the Cathedral as the location for one of the most joyous and sacred days of your life.

Although being a member is not a requirement to be married at the Cathedral, our sincere hope is that couples will attend worship at the Cathedral during marriage preparation and that each couple will consider becoming a regular part of the Cathedral community. Learn more about Weddings
