The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Reimagining Charity and Service

Lenten Program for Adults, Youth, and EYSeedlings

Sundays, March 5 - April 2, 5:30-7 p.m.


Dinner: 5:30–6 p.m., by Flora and Flour
Program: 6–7 p.m.

Our adult series will explore the concepts of charity, service, and poverty; consider new paradigms relating to charity; and invite reflection on our own practices relating to these areas: what seems to be working, what doesn’t, and where do we go from here? The series will be led by Canon Cathy Zappa and others, with a special presentation on March 19 by Shawn Duncan. Shawn is a teacher, preacher, and community organizer, and is the director of training and education at Focused Community Strategies (FCS), an organization with almost 40 years of experience transforming underserved neighborhoods in Atlanta.

Youth and EYSeedlings will have an age-appropriate program that mirrors what the adults are doing, so that family conversations can continue during the week. On March 5, youth will lead our participation in the Hunger Walk, and on March 19, the youth will be joining Church of the Common Ground for worship downtown.

Childcare will be provided. The program is free, but dinner is $6 for adults and $4 for children with a $25 maximum for families. Children 3 and under eat for free. So we can plan appropriately, please RSVP for dinner to Lisa McNamara.
