Catechumenate

  • What is Catechumenate?

    The Catechumenate is a community of learning, conversation, and fellowship in a gathering as old as Christianity itself. It is the journey to baptism, confirmation, reception into the Episcopal Church, or the reaffirmation of baptismal vows. Participation in the Catechumenate is also a wonderful way to learn more about Saint John’s as a cathedral and a community and to prepare for membership in the church. 

    Saint John’s offers three classes per year; you only have to sign up for one 4-week course to complete the catechumenate. Each class will meet for four consecutive weeks with clergy and a sponsor and then will continue the journey together with their sponsor.

    Due to the shortened nature of each class, please register only if you can be present at all four sessions with the clergy. Class sizes are limited to 15. For questions, please contact Tina Clark at .
