The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA


Making Room: A Mission Study Group

If you participate in any kind of outreach ministry (or would like to), have an interest in related issues, or simply enjoy a good theological conversation, join us this month for a mission study group. Canon Zappa will lead our discussions, which will be based on Christine Pohl’s Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as a Christian Tradition. This is an opportunity for us to support one another in our ministries and to take the time to reflect on how and why we do what we do. Join us this Sunday, October 25, from 1–2 p.m., even if you were not able to attend the first two sessions. It is not necessary to read the book.

BCM Welcomes New Executive Director

The Cathedral, along with four other area churches, founded Buckhead Christian Ministries (BCM) in 1987 as an emergency assistance provider. Over the years, BCM has expanded its services to include a continuum of services for individuals in varying stages of crisis; and the Cathedral has continued to support this ministry in many ways, including our annual food drives and many individual volunteers. This summer, BCM welcomed its new executive director, Daphne Walker, as longtime director Helen Cunningham moves into retirement.

Help St. Anne’s Guild Stock BCM’s Pantry

St. Anne’s Guild’s August food drive for Buckhead Christian Ministry (BCM) is drawing to a close. Please make a donation of food and/or checks of $20 or more by Monday, August 31. Make checks payable to Cathedral of St. Philip with “BCM Food Drive” on memo line. The BCM Food Pantry provides 2,000 bags of groceries to more than 1,600 people each month, and is stocked entirely with donations from the community. According to the US Department of Agriculture, one out of five children live in households without access to adequate food. To help, please stop by our table in the Atrium Sundays in August from 9:45–11:15 a.m.

Cathedral Thrift House

The Cathedral Thrift House is celebrating its first anniversary in its new location at 1893 Piedmont Road on September 2! Our customers, volunteers, and employees often remark that the store is like no other thrift store. It is filled with energy, gracious staff, lots of good music, and quality bargains. Nellie Holleman, parishioner and store manager, recently described why it is a special gathering place for our community: “It is a place of wonderful light – the light in the eyes of our guests when they find a true treasure. But the brightest light is in the eyes of the less fortunate when we give them a fresh change of clothes, a comforting cup of soup or a few kind words.”
