Día de los Muertos Art Project
The whole Cathedral community is invited to participate in the making of a Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) art installation of remembrance. Beginning October 15, there will be a table in the Atrium with bright strips of fabric and markers. Please write the name of a loved one who has died—or several loved ones—on a strip of fabric. We will gather all the brightly colored remembrances and hang them up on the railing of the Atrium for all to see. It will be a celebration of color and light and life and love. If you’d like to learn more about Día de los Muertos, swing by the Cathedral Book Store, watch the movie Coco, or come to our 11:15 a.m. Spanish service on November 4.
A Taste of Latin America
The Diocesan Commision on Hispanic Ministry sponsors A Taste of Latin America, an annual dinner celebrating Hispanic culture in and around Atlanta, and it is a real fiesta!

A pilgrimage-study week in Avila, Spain, based on the life and writings of St. John of the Cross, will be led by the Rev. Isaías Rodríguez, the Diocese of Atlanta’s canon for Hispanic ministries.

Visits to holy places in the lives of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila are planned.

Diocesan Day on Immigration
Amid all of the public turmoil about immigration, how do Christians respond in a way that allows them to live into their baptismal promise to respect the dignity of all persons and the imperative from Jesus to love our neighbor as ourselves? That is one of many questions participants will wrestle with during a discussion Wednesday, August 30 from 1–3 p.m. in Child Hall.
Opportunity To Attend Camp This Summer
This summer the Cathedral children’s program is sending ten rising sixth graders to Camp Mikell for a week. The idea is to build relationships in our various communities of children. The camp is funded through a special scholarship and six students will come from our Godly Play program or from the Cathedral’s Hispanic community, and the other four will be students in our La Amistad program. We are looking for children who will be great ambassadors of the Cathedral, embodying our values of grace, excellence and hospitality.

Deacons in the World – Called to Serve
As the Church has undergone significant changes, so has the order of deacons; however, the basic functions remain essentially the same. Deacons are heralds of the Word, servants of the church, and agents of the bishop. They embody two concepts of the ancient church, as messengers and waiters. As messengers, they herald the Word and proclaim the Good News of God in Christ and interpret the world to the community of faith.
Taste of Latin America was a Success!
Recently the Diocesan Hispanic Ministry sponsored its annual Taste of Latin America dinner in Child Hall. Along with a shared potluck supper prepared by Hispanic parishioners, there was music, dancing, raffle prizes and a piñata! After dinner, donations for humanitarian projects in Latin America were collected by “passing the hat.” Over $2,100 will soon be on the way to help orphaned children in Bolivia and Mexico, small farmers coping with a drought in Nicaragua, and victims of the earthquake in Ecuador. Shared time, shared food, and shared money have become loving assistance for people who are suffering and struggling in difficult situations.
The Cathedral Welcomes Bishop Whitmore This Sunday
At the 11:15 a.m. service this Sunday, April 24, Bishop Keith Whitmore will celebrate, preach, and confirm 60 Cathedral youth and adults. Join us as these Cathedral members make a public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their baptism. La Santa Eucaristía, which normally meets in Mikell Chapel, will join the Cathedral service this Sunday.
