As Christians, we spend our entire lives, from baptism to death, becoming disciples of Christ and growing in faith. As Episcopalians, this process of formation is shaped, in particular, by our liturgy and life together. Therefore, so are our education programs. The Cathedral offers programs for all ages and kinds of learners. These programs are intended to equip us for ministry and to foster spiritual growth through meaningful participation in and reflection on our common prayer, community, sacred stories, and mission. Contact Canon Lauren Holder, 404-365-1036, if you have questions about adult education.
Suicide Intervention Training
Friday – Saturday, September 23 – 24
8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Whether at work, at home, with friends or teammates, or in more formal helping roles, many of us have been, or will be, called upon to respond to someone who is experiencing a mental-health crisis or considering suicide. The Cathedral is hosting a two-day workshop in one of the world’s leading suicide-intervention models, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST). ASIST teaches individuals to provide a skilled intervention to a person who may be having thoughts of suicide and develop a collaborative safety plan to keep them safe and alive. The cost is $150 for Cathedral members, and continuing education credits are available. Please register by September 9 here. Once you register, you will receive an email for a link to pay for the workshop. Contact Hillary Jones, hjones@cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1038, with any questions.
