Join us as we hang up our cassocks and let our hair down to show a side of ourselves you will never see on Sunday morning! The musical feast will be augmented
by desserts and beverages for your enjoyment, and a silent auction with treasures from the vaults of some of our wonderfully generous parishioners. Tickets are available online at cathedralATL.org/uncorked and from the Cathedral Book Store. (Note date, not June 22 as previously published.)
SPIRITUALITY "WOMEN OF THE BIBLE" PILGRIMAGE TO ISRAEL IN 2020 (FOR MEN AND WOMEN) Join other Cathedral parishioners and pilgrims from around the world for a spiritual retreat with St. George’s College in Israel. We will be participating in a ten-day study pilgrimage called “Women of the Bible,” which offers a reflective spiritual experience for women and men who wish to focus on often overlooked perspectives in the Bible. The program is based in two venues: St. George’s College in Jerusalem and in a guest house in Galilee. In addition to the study pilgrimage, our Cathedral group will have extra days at the beginning and the end of the pilgrimage to explore this holy region on our own. The travel dates are May 31-June 14, 2020. The estimated cost is $5000, though we are still in the beginning stages of pricing group airfares and ground transportation. A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to sign up. Space is limited! If you are interested, contact Jeannie Mahood, jmahood@ cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1031, or Cathy Zappa, czappa@cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1043, for more complete information.
