Sacramental Ministries


Holy Baptism

Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. Baptism is normally offered five times annually. Those desiring to be baptized or to have a child baptized should speak with the Dean to set a date and arrange for instruction.


Holy Eucharist

Holy Eucharist is communion with God and the Church through sharing Christ’s presence in the blessed bread and wine. The Eucharist is offered to all baptized Christians on Sunday mornings, and at Wednesday and Friday services.


Holy Matrimony

Holy Matrimony is the joining together of two persons in a life-long, faithful, committed marriage that is rooted in the relationship between Christ and the Church.

Reconciliation is confessing one’s sins before God and a priest and receiving counsel and absolution. This sacrament is offered by appointment with the Dean.



Unction is prayers for healing with the laying on of hands and anointing with holy oil. This sacrament is available at any time from the Deacon or the Dean.



Confirmation is a mature, public affirmation of faith with the laying on of hands by the Bishop. Please contact the Dean if you desire confirmation.

Bishop Doug Sparks makes his next official visitation to the Cathedral of Saint James on Sunday, January 12, 2020. Anyone wishing to be Confirmed or Received into the Episcopal Church or desiring to renew their baptismal vows should contact Dean Brian Grantz.
