Education and Formation

Adult Formation


For practicing Catholic adults who for some reason or another were never confirmed, there is a Diocesan Adult Confirmation held each year. Preparation for the reception of this sacrament takes place between Easter and Pentecost. Please contact Deacon John Kranz sometime during Lent to inquire about instruction for Confirmation.  Email:     Phone: 801-328-8941  ext 116

Children’s Education

Children's Religious Education for children in pre-kindergarten through seventh grades and Confirmation classes for students in eighth through 12th grades takes place each Sunday from 9:30 AM until 10:45 AM during the school term. Classes are held in Scanlan Hall, on the lower level of the cathedral.  Children of the Cathedral parish and Madeleine Choir School receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion, which completes their Christian Initiation, and must be enrolled at least in second grade. Registration fee for supplies and materials is $50 or $75 per family plus $20 per student for the text. Sacramental preparation for Confirmation and First Communion is a two-year program. For further information, please contact Cathy Paiz, Coordinator of Children's Religious Education and Youth Ministry, at (801) 699-9059 or e-mail: .

Returning Catholics

For Catholics who have been away from the church and have returned or are thinking about returning there are often unresolved reasons that led to your departure. The Cathedral is beginning a discussion group for Catholics interested in returning to the church. The group will be facilitated by Mr. Ron Yengich and Deacon John Kranz. If you are interested in a meaningful discussion about what it means for you to return to the faith, please contact Deacon John Kranz at 801-328-8941 ext. 116 or .
