Living This One Life WellOver-scheduled. Over-committed. Over-functioning.
When we live our lives in overdrive, we lose our sense of self and direction. We think if we try harder to be better then we will find peace, contentment, and joy. Better is not the answer. Busier is not the answer. Being everything to everyone is not the answer. There is another way. We can learn to free ourselves from the stress of our routines, our insecurities, and our anxieties, and start living this one life well.
Childcare will be available through Mother‘s Morning Out. Make a reservation here.
Women's Build Day for Habitat for Humanity
Dear Women of the Cathedral,
I’m reaching out to you on behalf of the Cathedral’s Episcopal Church Women (ECW). Some of you may not realize that you are a member of this group, but if you are a woman and member of the Cathedral—you’re in! And as a member, you have a WONDERFUL opportunity to participate in a “Women’s Build Day” for the Cathedral Habitat for Humanity home on Saturday, April 26. You’ll work alongside fellow Cathedral ECW at-large and guild members to build a home for a deserving family. What a great way to build community among the women of the church while serving others!
Build activities will include finishing siding and caulking, painting the exterior and interior, maybe even installing some baseboard, window sills or interior trim. Never done this sort of thing before? Don’t worry, neither have I! There will be helpers to guide us. Lunch is provided on the build site by the fabulous Cathedral Habitat Food Team.
We’ll meet at 7:30 a.m. at Peachtree Battle Starbucks and carpool to the build site. The day will end around 4 p.m.
To participate in this special event, please sign up at the Habitat table in the Atrium on any Sunday prior to April 26 or click on the SIGN UP GENIUS link.
Come join us for this special day!!
Talley Hultgren, ECW President, 2014

2014 Cathedral Antiques Show and BeneficiaryThe Cathedral Antiques Show & Tour of Homes celebrated its 43rd year when it opened with the Preview Party on Wednesday, January 29, 2014. The Cathedral Antiques Show is a major outreach project sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women of the Cathedral of St. Philip. As Atlanta’s oldest and most prestigious antiques show, this annual event is truly a “Passion for a Purpose,” having raised almost $4 million for Atlanta-area non-profits since its inception in 1969.
With the help of hundreds of volunteers and support from the church, antique dealers, corporate sponsors, and patrons, the Antiques Show & Tour of Homes attracts participants and attendees from around the country who enjoy art, design, decorating, and learning about antiques. While preparations and planning occur throughout the year, the show is held at the Cathedral of St. Philip in late January to early February.
This year we are pleased to partner with Crossroads Community Ministries as our 2014 beneficiary. The mission of Crossroads is to empower people who are homeless to progress on the road toward economic and personal self-sufficiency. Funds raised through the Antiques Show will benefit the Crossroads Renewal Project and Housing Solutions Program, which will allow placement of additional families in safe, affordable apartments and will ensure the necessary services for pursuing an independent, hopeful life.
Katherine Hill and Marion Williams are the 2014 co-chairs. Buckhead residents and longtime active members of the Cathedral, Tish and Rowland Radford served as honorary chairs for the Antiques Show. We welcomed people throughout the parish and metro Atlanta to participate in this event by volunteering and attending the show activities. For more information on volunteer and sponsorship opportunities, please email email@example.com, or contact the Show office at 404-365-1107.
