Arrangements can be made for visitation of homebound parishioners by calling the Cathedral Center.
Anyone may request a Mass to be said for a deceased family member or friend. Intentions are printed weekly in the church bulletin. Intentions are not accepted on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, All Souls Day, or Christmas. Please only request one Mass Intention per week (Monday – Sunday) for each deceased and please note that Mass Intentions cannot be taken over the phone.
To request an intention, please mail this form along with stipends to:
Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist
ATTN: Mass Intentions
515 Cathedral St
Lafayette, LA 70501
If you wish to bring the form to the CathedralCenter, we would appreciate you doing so between 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon, to more easily comply with your request. Special dates should be requested at least two weeks in advance. If you wish confirmation of your intention, please enclose a self addressed, stamped envelope.
For special prayer requests other than for the deceased, you may call the Cathedral Center.
To Register as a Parishioner
We invite you to register as a parishioner of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. You may either call the
CathedralCenter or email our Parish Secretary, Danielle Huval.
To remain active on our census, we encourage parishioners to participate in at least one of our Parish ministries, to offer financial support to the parish, and to attend Holy Mass regularly at the Cathedral.
Any registered member of Cathedral Parish may request offering envelopes to help keep track of their contributions. Once requested, your envelopes will normally take two months to receive. An IRS tax statement of your donations will be mailed at the end of January to those who exceed the yearly donated amount of $250.
To obtain offertory envelopes, please contact the CathedralCenter.
Certificates for Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, Marriage or Death can be requested at a charge of $10 per certificate. All requests must be accompanied with a Certificate Request Form and must be paid in advance.
Any request from the years 1750 thru 1912 must include a volume number and page number which can be found in the Southwest Louisiana Records by Fr. Donald Hebert (found at your library).
Cathedral Parish has a number of study groups to accommodate your schedule:
