It meets every other month as a group for fellowship and programs that address members' vows. Meeting information is published in the Cathedral Times.

2016 Cathedral Antiques Show and Beneficiary
The Cathedral Antiques Show is a major outreach project sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women of the Cathedral of St. Philip. The show is a festival of beautiful antiques and the decorative arts held annually to benefit a designated charity. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and support from the church, antiques dealers, corporate sponsors, patrons, and the community, the Antiques Show has raised more than $5 million for Atlanta-area-non-profits since its inception in1969.
While preparation and planning occur throughout the year, the show is held at the Cathedral of St. Philip from late January to early February. This year's dates are January 30–February 7, 2016.
For our 45th show, we are pleased to partner with Literacy Action. Their vision is to set the standard of excellence in the field of adult basic education and to ultimately eradicate low literacy, a root cause of poverty, in the Atlanta area. Literacy Action hopes to build better futures for undereducated adults by teaching literacy, life and work skills that empower them to reach their highest potential.
Grace Foster and Laura Cullen are the 2016 co-chairs. Kathie and Tom Mahaffey, longtime active members of the Cathedral will serve as honorary chairs for the Antiques Show. We welcome people throughout the parish and metro-Atlanta to participate in this event by volunteering and attending the many show activities.
