Flower Guild

It is a busy time for the Cathedral Flower Guild!

We are currently planning floral designs to be used throughout the season for the Cathedral’s various worship spaces, including not only regular Sunday services, but also weddings, baptisms, special altar dedications and festivals!

There is much to do throughout the week and we are always looking for new members who want to get involved with a fun group of men and women of all ages who enjoy fellowship while providing a beautiful service to the Cathedral. Whether someone loves flowers or doesn’t know a thing about them, there’s a place for them on the Cathedral Flower Guild! . Interested Cathedral members may contact Canon Cathy Zappa for more information.

St. Anne's Guild:

St. Anne’s Guild is a ladies’ daytime guild, meeting during lunch hours of 11:30-1, usually on Thursdays, but days are subject to change depending on the guest speaker’s availability. The age range is in between the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. All meetings take place on site at the Cathedral with special events at members’ homes or at other public or private spaces.   

St. Anne’s has three missions: spiritual, social fellowship, and charity. Cathy Zappa is the spiritual leader and occasional speaker. Most speakers are spiritual leaders. In the past several decades, the guild has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Buckhead Christian Ministry. This past year, the guild donated $1,000 to the Afghan Women and $500 to Kids2Leaders.  

St. Anne’s has robust social fellowship! As an established guild with many long-time members, there are many deep relationships that exist within this guild. However, everyone extends open arms to new members who wish to join and expand the circle.

St. Veronica's Guild:

St. Veronica's Guild welcomes all women of St. Philip's to join in rich opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, Christian education, and fellowship, with meetings each second Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m., September through May. In addition, we purchase and distribute personal care items in partnership with four vital Atlanta Episcopal ministries: Holy Comforter Episcopal Church, Crossroads Community Ministries, Church of the Common Ground, and Emmaus House. Since the COVID pandemic, we no longer collect personal care items but rather buy them in bulk. To support this level of need is an ongoing challenge. You can make a donation to our personal care items drive online through the Cathedral's website. For more information, please contact Barbara Frolik.


Cathedral Giving By Design

With all net proceeds of the event going directly to the beneficiary, the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence, the Inaugural Cathedral Giving By Design event was a success because of our wonderful committee, our amazing community and all the people who supported the event.

The Welcome Home Party on Friday night was sold out. The guests enjoyed food by Soiree Catering, participated in the Live Auction, heard from Jean Douglas (the Executive Director of the Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence) and danced to music by Johnny Utah.

The Saturday Design Panel moderated by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Editor-in-Chief Lauren Iverson welcomed Clary Bosbyshell, Christina Dandar (The Potted Boxwood), Brandon Ingram and Janie Molster for a panel titled “Beyond the Front Door: Trends in Decorating, Lifestyle and Entertaining.” The panel surpassed expectations with over 250 guests enjoying the morning.

The three stunning Atlanta homes available to tour in person for the Tour of Homes was a huge success. Guests were also able to take a virtual stroll through three homes located in Cashiers, NC, Lake Rabun, GA, and Birmingham, AL. They could hear and see fantastic details about these houses as well as the décor. Commentary from the homeowners, architects and designers made this an afternoon that people did not want to miss.

We were thrilled by the Cathedral community’s support of the event and thankful for the opportunity to increase awareness for the Women’s Resource Center.
