The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

Thanks from St. Anne's Guild

St. Anne’s Guild extends a huge thank you to the Cathedral’s members, staff and volunteers who supported the semi-annual Buckhead Christian Ministries (BCM) food drive this February. Food drives provide 60% of the food BCM offers to those in need within our community and BCM purchases the other 40% with donated money. Your generous gifts allowed our church to provide 144 bags of groceries and write a check for $7,159.48 to BCM.
Kudos go to Mary Hunter Rouse, Maggie Paul, and Casey Jones who kicked off our food drive with the “Souper Bowl” Sunday youth collection; to the choir who had a special collection among its members; and to Sara Chapman who set up a food “store” for children to shop, then donate their food “purchases.”

Thanks from St. Veronica's Guild

St. Veronica’s Guild would like to offer our most heartfelt thanks for the very generous outpouring of gifts of personal care items from members of our parish for the four ministries to which we provide them: Crossroads Community Ministries, Emmaus House, Church of the Common Ground, and Holy Comforter Friendship Center. Feedback from the ministries has indicated great appreciation and ongoing need for these items. Special thanks goes to Charlotte Rubenstein, and her mother, Susan Gantt, for leading a drive among Charlotte’s sixth grade class at Woodward. Members of this class both contributed and sorted a great many items.

UTO: Episcopalians Doing For Others In Faithfulness to God’s Mission

UTO: Episcopalians Doing For Others In Faithfulness to God’s Mission
If you’ve been filling a United Thank Offering (UTO) Blue box be sure to bring it to church with you this Sunday, November 15 for our ingathering. UTO is a ministry of the Episcopal Church that offers all an opportunity to give. Since 1889 UTO has provided a way for Episcopalians to make a difference with the message of thanks-giving and self-giving. The discipline starts in parishioners’ homes by dropping coins into a special container known as the Blue Box, which are available in the pews. Many families and individuals drop a coin in the Blue Box each time prayers of thanksgiving are offered.
