The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA


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.

Choral Eucharist for All Faithful Departed

On All Saints’ Sunday, November 5, at 4 p.m., the Cathedral offers our annual Choral Eucharist for All Faithful Departed. During the Prayer of Consecration, the names of all Cathedral members and family and friends who have died during the past year are read aloud from the altar. The music for the service will center around Tomás Luis de Victoria’s great mass setting Missa O quam gloriosum, which is based on his motet of the same name. Come and help remember the faithful modern day saints who have passed on during the last year, while listening to some of the greatest music of the Renaissance. All are welcome.

Children’s Chapel is Back!

Children’s chapel takes place during the 8:45 a.m. service as an option for parents and children who are not yet ready to experience the full liturgy together, though children are always welcome in “big” church. Children three years through third grade begin in church with their parents, then follow the children’s acolytes and leaders out at the sequence hymn.Children will rejoin their parents at the Offertory.  Two-year-olds attend their own chapel service, which begins at 8:45 a.m. Parents who would like their children two years old and younger to join them for communion may go pick them up from Room 227 at the Peace.

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.
