Join the Cathedral

A warm welcome is extended to new parishioners! We invite all parishioners to register with the Rectory Office. If you are new to the parish, or if you are a regular communicant who has never formally registered as a parishioner, there are registration forms available at the Rectory Office (Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm) or online.

Registration helps us to serve you when issuing letters in connection with sponsorship of Baptism, Confirmation or Matrimony. Baptism, Confirmation and Marriage are all sacraments which are taken very seriously. In order for you to receive a sacrament or play a role in someone else’s reception of a sacrament, you will need to have been an active parishioner. When someone is asked to be a godparent or to sponsor someone’s Confirmation, a Letter of Eligibility is required from our Parish testifying that the godparent or sponsor is an active parishioner.

A Letter of Eligibility is asking the priest to sign and acknowledge that the person is at least 16 years of age, confirmed, celebrating the sacraments regularly, and, if married, married in the Catholic Church. This person must be registered and an active member of the parish for a minimum of 6 months.

Parish Boundaries: Broad Street from Fairmount Avenue to Market Street; to the Schuylkill River; to the Spring Garden Street Bridge; to the George Washington Monument (entrance to the Parkway); along Parkway to 20th Street; to Fairmount Avenue; to Broad St.  If you do not live within the Parish boundaries, you must get a letter of permission from the Parish in which you reside before registering with the Cathedral.
