Parishioners of St. George’s Cathedral who wish to have their child baptized in the cathedral must contact the parish priest who will make an appointment for a mandatory pre-baptism session for the parents and godparents. During these sessions such things as the effects of baptism on the candidate, and the responsibilities of the parents and godparents in the life of the child will be discussed. Also, it is required that at least one of the godparents must be Catholic.
“By Christ’s institution, a valid marriage between baptized persons is by that very fact a sacrament in which the spouses are united by God after the pattern of Christ’s indefectible union with the church, and are, as it were, consecrated and strengthened by sacramental grace” CCEO Can 776.2).
Couples intending to be married at St. George’s Cathedral must meet, by appointment, with the parish priest at least six months to one year prior to the proposed date of wedding.
