The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Parenting Youth Series

This fall, the Cathedral youth ministry is hosting a dinner-and-speaker series for parents. Please join us for the last session in the series this Sunday, November 5 in the Gould Room from 5:30–7 p.m. We’ll have good food, fellowship, and an informative conversation about how the Cathedral approaches youth ministry and Sunday School, how you can nurture your children’s faith, and how you can respond to difficult questions that they raise. Canon Cathy Zappa, Maggie Paul, and Clayton Harrington will lead the discussion, and there is no charge.

While parents are meeting, Meg Jones will lead EYC, so you can bring your 6th – 8th graders and make it a family night at church! RSVP to Maggie Paul.
