Registered parishioners receive important mailings from the Cathedral (including weekly emails of coming events, offering envelopes, and the Cathedral’s journal In Your Midst), are able to celebrate their wedding at the Cathedral, and their children may attend any of the Catholic Rainbow Schools at parishioner rates (and become eligible for Cathedral scholarships). In addition, if you are a registered parishioner and use envelopes, or participate in our online giving program, we will mail you a quarterly report of your contributions to the parish. Register online at www.stjames-cathedral.org. If you are not sure whether or not you’re registered, call the Parish Office, 206-622-3559.
