Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which the Christian community welcomes new members into the household of God. Private Baptisms are generally not permitted except in unique pastoral circumstances.

On the day before the Baptism service, parents and godparents (sponsors) are expected to participate in a two-hour Baptism preparation led by Cathedral clergy.

Each year the Cathedral Treasurer, in close collaboration with the Dean and the Finance Committee, prepares a budget to guide spending and seeks budget approval from the Vestry. In fall, the chairs of the various organizations within the Cathedral are asked to submit requests for the following year. The Cathedral Vestry normally approves the budget for the coming year by the end of December.
