Seminarian to Join Cathedral

We are excited to introduce our new seminarian, Clayton Harrington. Clayton is a second-year student at Candler School of Theology, where he is pursuing a Master of Divinity with a certificate in Episcopal Studies. He is from Broadway, North Carolina, a small town an hour south of Raleigh. Clayton will be serving and learning with us for two years. His duties will include assisting in worship and being present in Bible studies and other koinonia groups of the Cathedral.

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.”

Community Reading Group to Meet Monthly

Readers from the Cathedral parish and the broader community will gather to discuss contemporary books and issues from a theological perspective, on the first Wednesday of each month, from 6:30–7:30 p.m. at the Cathedral Book Store. Discussions will be facilitated by various clergy and lay teachers. All are welcome! This is a group for all who, like C.S. Lewis, read to know we are not alone. Let's talk about what we've read! Come join us and add to the discussion.
