The Cathedral is open every Sunday from 7:30am to midday.

As St John’s has a special place in Parramatta and in the lives of many people, we receive many requests for weddings. At the current time we are only able to accommodate weddings for regular attendees.

We currently hold infant and adult baptisms, as well as confirmations, for our regular attendees on one Sunday in November each year. This is a large combined service for our congregations (over 700 people) to celebrate the transforming power of Jesus in the lives of those being baptised and confirmed.

If you would like to discuss baptism or confirmation, please join us one Sunday and speak to a Pastor.

Microfilm copies of the early registers, up to at least 1856 when registration of births, deaths & marriages was made compulsory, are held by many public libraries, historical and genealogical societies. These can normally be consulted at no cost. On these microfilms each entry is shown in its entirety. There is no additional information to be obtained by consulting the original registers.
