Part of what makes church a spiritual home is the feeling of connectedness. It is our hope that all in our Cathedral community will find enriching opportunities of connection within the congregation, and beyond!
We have ways for all people to be involved in worship, education, mission, and more. Here are a few other ways to be a part of the life of the Cathedral:
Upcoming Community Events:
All God’s Children: A Conversation on being Christian and LGBTQ+
Sunday, March 26, 5:30 p.m., Gould Room
Join Cathedral parishioner Hubert Tate as he engages in a conversation with fellow parishioners Del King and Victor Moldovan, the first LGBTQ+ couple married at the Cathedral of St. Philip, after the Supreme Court of the United States struck down the ban on marriage in 2015. Though the Cathedral had blessed same-sex marriages prior to 2015, the union between King and Moldovan was the first formal ceremony that legally recognized the marriage.
The event will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Gould Room on Sunday, March 26. Come and enjoy this intriguing conversation with small bites and wine. A voluntary donation of any commitment is asked to support the Cathedral’s Ricks Wheeler fund, which is a ministry to support programs and activities to persons living with HIV/AIDS.
Our Newcomers Committee hosts gatherings throughout the year to connect new members with parishioners, staff, and Cathedral groups. Some of our best committee members are relative newcomers themselves, familiar with that “new church” feeling, and others are seasoned experts.
Foyers offers small group dinner opportunities throughout the year. Members of the group take turns hosting—some providing the space, others providing the food, all providing meaningful fellowship. This is a great way to get to know a handful of people without feeling overwhelmed. For more information, contact Canon Lauren Holder.
Episcopal Church Women
If you’re in the Episcopal Church and identify as a woman, Episcopal Church Women is here for you! This lively group of women serve our parish and the Atlanta community in deep and meaningful ways. With five different guilds to choose from, there is something for everyone. Watch for events throughout the year, and know you are invited even if you’re not associated with a specific guild.

Word to Your Mother
Word to Your Mother is a group of busy, busy moms who gather every-odd-month to discuss a book, our families, our work, our play, and our spiritual lives. Whether you are soaring or barely treading water, come as you are and feel the love and support of other women just like you. For more information, contact Canon Lauren Holder.
Sons of Thunder
Sons of Thunder meet monthly for breakfast, discussion, and fellowship. All men are welcome! Each session stands on its own, so come when your schedule permits.
