Sacraments & Ceremonies

There are many ways to become part of the Christ Church Cathedral community.

CathedralbaptismBaptism
If you haven’t already been baptized in either the Episcopal Church or another Christian tradition and are interested in exploring being baptized and becoming a part of the Body of Christ, contact The Rev. Kathie Adams-Shepherd to learn about baptismal preparation and baptism.

Confirmation or Reception
If you were baptized as a child in the Episcopal Church and make an adult profession of faith, or if you are member of another denomination and want to join the Episcopal Church, confirmation or reception is for you. There are classes for preparation, and confirmation or reception is offered several times a year when the Bishop visits Christ Church Cathedral. For more information, contact The Rev. Kathie Adams-Shepherd.

Membership
If you’re baptized and want to become a member of Christ Church Cathedral—whether by transfer from another church or not—contact Cathedral Administrator Annette Carr. It’s remarkably easy.

Weddings
Marriage is a joyful event and a sacrament, as well as a public proclamation of the love between two people—and the blessing of Christ on that union. Our space celebrates love with weddings and blessings. These ceremonies are available to members and nonmembers alike. If you desire to have a marriage, or a blessing of a civil marriage at Christ Church Cathedral, explore the Handbook for Weddings for details.

Weddings, unions, and blessings are booked in advance and scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Questions, or to check for availability, please call the Cathedral office at 314.255.1641.
