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!
Our Cathedral Young Professionals group continues to gather, serve, pray, and study together in various ways, including our winter book study, service opportunities, and ongoing spiritual community. All Cathedral members—and friends—in their 20s and 30s are welcome! To find out more, contact Canon Cathy Zappa at czappa@cathedralATL.org. We would love to see you!
Reflect and Connect
Lenton Mini-Retreat for Young Professionals
We hope that you will join us for this Lenten mini-retreat, a day of reflection, connection, and spiritual renewal. Drawing on insights from Parker Palmer’s Let Your Life Speak and other sources, we will be listening for God’s call through our lives and through the stories of others. Whether you grew up at the Cathedral or are brand new, this retreat is a great opportunity to “observe a Holy Lent” and connect with other Cathedral YP’s in meaningful way. The retreat includes lunch and the cost is $10; you can pay at cathedralATL.org/payments or on the Atrium kiosk. Please RSVP to Canon Cathy Zappa, czappa@cathedralATL.org.
Winter Book Study
Our Young Professionals Winter Book Study meets on Wednesdays (except Ash Wednesday), 6–7 p.m., by Zoom. We are discussing Michael Curry’s book, Love Is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times, along with holy scriptures. Come as you can, and when you can—and come even if you don’t have time to read the book! We read excerpts together, so that everyone can participate in the conversation. No preparation required!
YP Leadership Team
We are excited to announce a new leadership team for the Young Professionals! To deepen our YP ministry and widen our reach, we are introducing a new lay leadership structure consisting of a chairperson and co-chairs. Serving terms of 1–2 years, they will help set priorities for our YP programs, plan events, and provide pastoral support. Meet your new YP leadership team: Hubert Tate (chair), Huston Collings (co-chair), and Abby Schultz (co-chair). Thank you, Hubert, Huston, and Abby!
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.
