Overview

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, or reception into the Episcopal Church, or 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.

While we cannot gather to take this journey together in person, this year we are offering three opportunities to join our clergy in a small class of catechumens. Each class will meet for four consecutive weeks with their clergy and a sponsor and then will continue the journey together with their sponsor. The catechumenate will take place through Sunday afternoon online meetings with clergy and regular contact with the class sponsor for three months to follow.
