A Generous Start for Planting BCM’s “Client Choice” Food Pantry Concept

St. Anne’s Guild, as volunteer ambassadors for Buckhead Christian Ministry (BCM), are pleased to announce the results of their Cathedral-wide collection to fund the newly proposed “Client Choice” food pantry concept at BCM. The generosity of our Cathedral parishioners in August yielded a record $9,190 in seed money. The guild is very thankful for such tremendous support of this new BCM direction; we will hope for your ongoing help to match or exceed this great result at our next scheduled collection in February. As the Cathedral takes the lead in sponsoring BCM’s new food assistance concept, kudos to all who are contributing the seed for exciting growth ahead!

Pajama Day in Support of Emma’s Closet

Emma’s Closet is now collecting coats and shoes to be distributed at the Homeless Requiem. Children who bring items on Sunday, October 21 to donate are invited to wear their PJs to church. This year we are collecting items for all people. We have noticed a high demand for men’s shoes. We would love to collect a large selection of men’s track shoes or outdoor thick-soled shoes in assorted sizes. We still need items for children but we are expanding our inventory this year to adults.

Annual Children's Book Drive

For the fourth year, the Cathedral Book Store is collecting new books for the children at the Homeless Requiem, the children at the Arrendale Prison Children’s Center, the young people at Covenant House, and the children at Wilderness Works, this year’s Antiques Show beneficiary. Books are available to purchase at the Cathedral Book Store during regular business hours or in the Atrium from 9 -11 a.m. each Sunday in October. Our goal is to collect 250 books to be distributed to children attending the Homeless Requiem in November and to the other groups in December. Please purchase a book and help each of these beautiful children receive a wonderful gift this year!

Labyrinth Walk and Taizé

Get your week off to a peaceful start with a labyrinth walk and Taizé this Monday, October 15. A labyrinth introduction will take place at 6:30 p.m., followed by a facilitated walk from 7-8 p.m. (outdoors by the Lanier House, weather permitting; otherwise in Child Hall). The Taizé prayer service starts at 8 p.m. in Mikell Chapel. Originating in Taizé, France, this simple service of scripture, music and candlelight will bring a beautiful and prayerful close to your Monday. The labyrinth and Taizé take place every third Monday of the month. Come to one, or both – and bring a friend!
