Weddings

weddingCongratulations on your engagement! We'll be honoured to help you celebrate your special day. For general information on weddings at St. Paul’s Cathedral please contact our church office. If you would like to meet with a member of the clergy to talk about getting married at St. Paul’s you would be most welcome to make an appointment.

Couples are required to undertake a marriage preparation course prior to the wedding, and will be encouraged to attend some services at St. Paul’s so that a relationship between the church and the couple can be formed. At least one partner is required to have been baptized, but this should not stop a couple from making an initial enquiry. We would encourage you to make an appointment to come and meet with a member of the clergy and to see the church.

Baptisms

baptismProbably the most important thing we do at St. Paul’s is to baptize! These are wonderful occasions which the whole congregation celebrates. If you are interested in the sacrament of Baptism for your child or for yourself, please contact our church office.

Baptism services are organized on special days throughout the Christian year; we will be able to let you know the next scheduled baptism service when you make your initial enquiry. Sponsors should be baptized adults of any Christian community. Sponsors are also given the responsibility to encourage the candidate in the Christian faith. Candidates and/or sponsors are required to undertake a Baptism preparation course which is centered around a couple of dinners and there you will be encouraged to attend some services at St. Paul’s so that a relationship between the church and the candidate/sponsors can be formed.

Confirmation

confirmationWelcome to St. Paul’s Cathedral Confirmation program! Confirmation is an exciting step in our faith journey as Christians. It's a process of asking questions, delving deeper into scripture and worship and growing into a stronger relationship with God and our church. It's a time to consider what has come before, and what possibilities are ahead.

Confirmation is a sacrament, taking on the Baptismal Covenant as your own promise to God, and being welcomed as an adult member of the faith community. 
Classes which are run every two years are upbeat and interactive, involving lots of games and discussions. If you're interested in registering please contact our church office.

Reconciliation of a Penitent

The ministry of reconciliation, committed by Christ to his Church, is exercised through the care of Christians for each other, through the common prayer of Christians assembled for public worship, and through the priesthood of the Church in its ministers declaring absolution.

The Reconciliation of a Penetent is available for all who desire it.  It is not restricted to a time of sickness.  Confessions may be made at any time and in any suitable place.  Please contact one of the priests in the Cathedral or arrange for an appointment through the Church office.
