At Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral, our Catholic faithful will celebrate and be initiated into the sacramental life of the Church through Baptism, first Holy Communion, and Confirmation. Already more than one thousand men, women and children seek initiation in the Church in the Rite of Election each year. In our new Cathedral, they will gather around the shepherd of the Diocese and be led into new Life in Christ.
In this sacred place, all the faithful will be able to witness those who lay down their lives in Christ to be ordained as priests and deacons, those who commit themselves to serve Him through a life consecrated to God as religious, and those who reflect Christ’s love for His Bride the Church by joining themselves to each other in the Sacrament of Marriage.
Finally, Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral will be for our Diocese a focus of prayer, as we ask God’s amazing grace, strength and blessing on His people at Diocesan Masses such as the Chrism Mass, the Wedding Anniversary Mass and the Altar Servers Mass.
