Women’s Lenten Retreat: Altars and Altered

Cathedral women, along with women friends or relatives, are invited to attend our annual Lenten Retreat, March 13-15 at St. Mary’s Sewanee in Tennessee. As we weather transformations in our lives, it is important to remember and revisit our sacred core with intention. This weekend we will explore altars. What are they for? How do they ground us? What can they look like? And we will build altars—sacred spaces to visit within ourselves and outside ourselves. In the beautiful setting of St. Mary’s Sewanee, there will be plenty of time to rest, play, enjoy the outdoors, and be in fellowship with God and one another.

The Camels are Coming: St. Veronica's Epiphany Toiletry Drive

The Epiphany camels are coming to the Atrium January 5-12 to collect your donations of personal care items for the four Atlanta ministries St. Veronica’s Guild supports.

The wise women of St. Veronica’s Guild welcome all unopened personal care items you get when you travel or shop this holiday season.

The Gathering 2020

The Cathedral of St. Philip is only as fabulous as the people who create our community and make it sacred. Following Evensong on Sunday, January 12, we want to give thanks for our LGBTQ community. January 12 is the feast day St. Aelred of Rievaulx, whose theological writings both shaped the church and lifted up the beauty of same-sex relationships. Join us in giving thanks for our gay friends! All are welcome. Gay, straight, questioning—just come as the fullest expression of who God created you to be. Contact Canon Lauren Holder, or 404-365-1036, with any questions.
