Episcopal Church Women (ECW)
The mission of the ECW, which includes every woman of the Cathedral parish, is to support the efforts of all members of the Cathedral in order to help people find Christian community through service, study and worship. If you have any questions about the ECW, contact the 2019 president, Meredith Bateman.

Daughters of the King (DOK)
Daughters of the King is a religious order of Episcopal lay women who pledge a life of prayer, service and evangelism. They participate regularly in prayer, and, as they are able, serve on and off campus. The Cathedral chapter of the DOK offers a community to support spiritual growth and respite for those serving the parish. It meets every other month as a group for fellowship and programs that address members' vows. Meeting information is published in the Cathedral Times. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Daughters of the King should contact Cathy Hutcheson, 770-451-0907.

Our goal is to be a resource of hospitality for our clergy, staff and parishioners within the Cathedral. Annual dues are $20, payable online here. Please also sign up here so we have your contact info. Contact Dorsey DeLong or Caroline Wallace with any questions.

2019 Cathedral Antiques Show and Beneficiary
The Cathedral Antiques Show is a major outreach project sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women of the Cathedral of St. Philip. The show is a festival of beautiful antiques and the decorative arts held annually to benefit a designated charity. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and support from the church, antiques dealers, corporate sponsors, patrons, and the community, the Antiques Show has raised more than $5 million for Atlanta-area-non-profits since its inception in 1969.
For our 48th show, our beneficiary is Wilderness Works, which has served Atlanta’s chronically homeless, impoverished, and extremely vulnerable children for over 20 years. They provide year-round enrichment, experiential education, and character development through city camps, summer nature camps, and outdoor living field camps in our National Parks. Wilderness Works teaches self-worth through self-sufficiency gained during discovery experiences at these camps.
