Information Desk Volunteers Needed

Perhaps you have noticed the light is always ON at the Information Desk in the Atrium, signifying that the Cathedral is always open and welcoming. Volunteers staff the desk, now referred to as the Welcome Center, to extend greetings to parishioners and visitors, providing information and direction. Additionally, general calls coming into the Cathedral are answered here and directed as needed. Join this fun ministry by contacting Ivory Richardson, or 404-365-1037.

February 4 is Scout Sunday

Scout Sunday celebrates the founding of the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910. In 2018, the Cathedral’s Boy Scout Troop 74 is also celebrating its own 67th birthday. It is a tradition for the Scouts of Troop 74 to observe Scout Sunday on February 4 by worshiping with their families and serving as ushers at the 8:45 a.m. service. All Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Scout leaders are invited to join this service in uniform, regardless of their troop or pack affiliation.

A Taste of Latin America 2017

Every year the Diocesan Hispanic Ministry Commission sponsors a special dinner called A Taste of Latin America, and it is a real fiesta! Hispanic members from several parishes will bring tasty Latin American food to share with guests at the special potluck meal. There will be music and dancing, craft items for sale, a raffle, and a silent auction - plus a piñata for the children, of course! This year’s dinner will be on Saturday, October 7, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. in Child Hall. Reservations and tickets are not required; after dinner, sombreros will be passed for donations. The funds from this year’s event will be used to help hurricane and earthquake victims in Latin America and the Caribbean. Friends and family members of all ages are welcome. Mark your calendar and plan to come!

Welcome Our New Seminarian

Join us in welcoming Nicole Lambelet, a first year M.Div. student at Emory University's Candler School of Theology, as our new seminarian. She will be helping with worship and youth Sunday school on Sundays and will be participating in other ministries during the week. Nicole is a postulant in the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana and is seeking ordination to the priesthood. Originally from New Mexico, Nicole has worked at the intersections of food production, justice organizing, and violence prevention. Most recently, Nicole has worked as a volunteer chaplain at Memorial Hospital and an advocate at the rape crisis center in South Bend, Indiana. Both of these experiences have led her to explore the vocation of chaplaincy. Nicole is married to Kyle, a Postdoctoral Fellow at Emory, and has two children: Garren, 8, and Naomi, 5.
