The people of St. Catherine's seek to share in the love that Jesus Christ has for us and the world by welcoming, accepting, nurturing, and serving all people through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We Welcome You!
The Newsletter of
By Father Jim+
As you read this we are preparing to hear one of the stories of Jesus’ feeding of the five or four thousand, depending on which Gospel you read. For many, including me, this story is seen as a precursor to our Eucharistic celebration each week as we gather around our altar.
Henry Nouwen, the great Roman Catholic mystic, speaks of the Eucharist in a way that expands my view of this sacrament so central to our common life. He encourages us to view our daily human interactions as Eucharistic in nature. As we gather with one another, as we care for, nurture, and seek each other we, in effect, feed one another. We become the body and blood of Christ as we share our bodies, minds and souls with one another. This resonates with me because, in fact, I find myself constantly nourished by the relationships I share with each of you and with my family and friends. I have said often that I come to know Jesus Christ most fully through my human interactions. Frank Griswold puts it this way: “As the Christ within me meets the Christ with you our understanding of Christ is enlarged.” I am fed by the words and deeds that bring Christ alive in my daily life in community.
Joan and I travel with some very good friends from Memphis, Tennessee. We’ve traveled with them for nearly 25+ years. We know them and they knew us even before my change of vocation. There is a degree of freedom in our relationship because, as they are apt to remind me, “we knew you before….” They are Southern Baptist. We are Episcopalian. I am a priest. They are very involved as lay persons in the day to day ministry of their church. There is very little we haven’t discussed from a theological point of view. As you might expect we come to questions of faith from very different viewpoints and often have to agree to disagree. I find myself, however, constantly fed by not only by our relationship but by the frank and engaging conversations we share.
As we gather at the Eucharistic table each week at St. Catherine’s, there is a great diversity among us. There are many great questions of faith on which we would find the full spectrum of opinions and answers. It is this diversity that I celebrate because it continues to nourish me; my mind, body and soul. Together we become the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ and we feed one another. How empty it would feel if we agree on all matters of faith, or life, or politics. It would be as though we stare into a plate of food all the same color or consistency. Jesus Christ came amongst us so that each and every one of us would be fed and his feeding is abundant as Luke reminds us this week in his story of the feeding of the five thousand. Jesus invites each of us to come to the table so that he might feed us and that we in turn might feed one another.

We will recognize all our rising college freshmen to wish them God-speed, and present to them the St. Catherine's Book Scholarship Fund awards. Here are our out-going college freshmen and their respective schools. Congratulations to each!
St. Catherine’s Book Scholarship Fund
In 2001 St. Catherine’s began to award college book scholarships to our rising college freshmen. It has been a wonderful gift to our parish and to each of these young people. The St. Catherine’s College Book Scholarship Fund began as the Dorothy Hanson Memorial Fund, in memory of the mother of parishioner Dani Dickson, and is funded each year by gifts in her honor as well as proceeds from the Parish Picnic and other individual gifts. To date, we have presented over 100 scholarships in a total amount of nearly $20,000. At this time, we are able to give small scholarships to our rising college freshmen, but with additional gifts we hope to expand either the amount of the gift or have the ability to help support our students each year of their college careers.
We thank everyone who has been so generous to the fund this year. Donations are still welcome at any time, please make checks to St. Catherine’s and designate for this fund. Donations are tax deductible. Please keep the fund, its purpose and future, and the young people who benefit from it in your prayers.
Tuesday, August 5

Special schedule on Aug. 24! There will be only one worship service at 9:00 a.m. on Aug. 24, due to our annual Ministry Fair which, as is St. Catherine’s custom, begins and ends with food! Join us in between for a special worship service, followed by your choice of three 20-minute workshops from over 20 offerings, in which our Ministry Teams will share some of the wide variety of church and outreach activities by the members of St. Catherine’s. Our schedule for the day is:
Workshop offerings are now being finalized—they will include offerings from our six Ministry Teams and the Vestry. We’re also looking at the possibility of one on Youth and Children’s offerings and one on how volunteering as members of the community impacts our personal lives as well as the lives of others. Displays will also be offered by these teams in the long hallway that leads to the Parish Hall.
Youth are welcome to attend any workshops that interest them. For kids there will be special movies (two age groups) and childcare will be provided for our youngest members.
The annual Ministry Directory and Christian Formation brochure will be ready prior to the Ministry Fair. You can look those over ahead of time and start thinking about which of the workshop offerings you might want to attend. Not all of our 120+ ministries can be squeezed into the morning, but written information will be available in addition to the handbooks. And this is a great opportunity for you to ask questions of the folks that lead and do these ministries on a regular basis. Many will tell you about how doing ministry for others does even more for them!
YOU ARE INVITED to join us on Sunday, Aug. 24 for a morning of worship, fellowship, fun, food and some important information. Website for A Moveable Feast is www.thefrenchtruck.com and a special brunch menu will be chosen. Brunch purchases will be on your own. We will provide water, lemonade and coffee.
The need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. In Georgia we must collect 1,300 units of blood daily to meet the needs of our patients and hospitals. And you’ll feel good knowing you've helped change a life!
Our August 26 blood drive will be held 3:00 to 7:00 PM in the Parish Hall. You can reserve a time slot now by going to www.redcrossblood.org and enter the sponsor code: HOLTRC. However, appointments are not required, if you don’t get around to making one you are still welcome to come. Help is also need for greeting donors, setup and clean up, please contact Jennifer Massey, massey.jmgmail.com / 404.375.8327.

Did you know there are 38 scriptures in the Bible that have time as their focus? Do you wonder why?
The first creation was Time. Time began and time will end. Each breath, each beat of the heart comes only once. And so that is our primary mission: To elevate time and make it holy.
When you take control of your life, the first place to start is with Time: Where have you placed the hours of your day? But you cannot control Time until you first take control of yourself: Where have you placed your heart, your mind and your soul? What is important to you? Why have you entered this world? Is your time for study, time for prayer, time for family, time for the world anchored with all your being?
Have you been thinking about how you can give your most precious gift, your time? You will be able to hear details of the many opportunities that are available at St. Catherine's and in the community—come to the Ministry Fair on Sunday, August 24, 10:30 am - noon.
The word "acolyte" is derived from the Greek word akolouthos, meaning companion, attendant, or helper. St. Catherine’s is blessed to have had 37 acolytes during the past year who have been our constant companions, attendants and helpers! We are so thankful for the gifts of their time and talent:
Torches - Alison Adams, Thad Barrington, Connor Buckalew, Riley Devault, Coleman Dupuis, Stephanie Gardiner, Sebastjian Hutton, Justin Kerr, Michael Kerr, John Owen, Wyatt Pitts, Sydney Spessard, Forrest Tuemmler, Nat Whitlow, Riley Yucius , Maddie Zimmerman

These are just a few of the reflections that were collected from the participants of St. Cat’s Interfaith Immersion Weekend, which was held July 25 through 27. A group of 20 St. Cat’s members embarked on a journey of spiritual, inter- and intra-personal exploration and growth by stepping outside of the comforts and consistencies of the community and culture that we are all accustomed to and into the faiths, cultures and traditions of our global neighbors who live so close, yet often seem so far away. The weekend included intellectual and experiential encounters with five major faith traditions of the world – Islam, Judaism, Vedanta, Hinduism, and Buddhism. We heard from well-respected spiritual leaders from each of these communities and then sat alongside them during their worship activities.
While reviewing all of the responses, a few key themes began to emerge. The most common thought was that we have way more in common with these other groups than previously expected. Another key theme was that this experience helped to deepen (not change) the faith of those who participated. Finally, in line with the focus of Amma Susan’s sabbatical (through which this weekend was funded), this weekend raised awareness of the potential for peace as gained through understanding and treating everyone as we would like to be treated ourselves. Peace, by definition, requires togetherness and harmony, so Widen the Circle.
A great heart-felt swell of gratitude goes out to all those who so eagerly took part in this weekend and to those who helped make it possible! Look out for your opportunity to Build Bridges of Peace as we solidify details of the next St. Cat’s Interfaith Immersion Weekend coming THIS FALL!
More reflections from participants:
The Interfaith Immersion Weekend is an awesome educational, enlightening and spiritual weekend. This exposure to various faiths and cultures of our world helped me to have a better understanding of and respect for people that are not like me and who may not worship like me. The bottom line for me—regardless of what name people of different cultures and faiths use to refer to God, we are all endeavoring to develop a relationship with the same God. My Lord is the same one Supreme God of the Hindu people, the same Allah of the Muslim people, the same Yahweh of the Jewish people, and the Truth of Vedanta. Regardless of what name we use to call upon God or what rituals we use to worship, God hears all of us and responds to us all! — Kim Moran
Saint Catherine's participants were a delight—very curious and interactive with "the other." "God is greater than anyone of us can imagine." Thank you Pierce Hale, Amma Susan and Father Jim for your work to make the weekend happen. — Jan Swanson
It sounded interesting, but I didn’t know what to expect. It turned out to be a rare opportunity for spiritual exploration, conversation and learning with welcoming people whose paths leading to God differ from ours. — Woodie Patrick
The weekend was fun and informative—just what I hoped it would be. I'm glad I went with the group because I doubt I would have had the courage to cross the threshold and ask questions by myself. I'm looking forward to continuing the conversation with people that I met. — Deborah Hurd
As I expected, I learned a lot about other faith traditions by listening to our hosts and by attending Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist worship, but I think I learned even more about my own faith traditions and practices by seeing them from the other perspectives. It was well worth the time spent! — Tom Hunter
Thank you, Pierce Hale, for leading (sometimes herding) our jovial group on a spiritual, educational and satisfying experience. As promoted, the weekend offered opportunities for dialogue, listening, asking questions, prayer, being quiet, culinary delights, building new friendships, sightseeing, learning and remembering our history, honoring diversity, exploring what compassion means, and experiencing God in the familiar and in the unique … 12 of my favorite things to do. Several worship leaders this weekend stopped to recognize and thank “the group visiting from St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church.” We were applauded and made to feel welcome and appreciated for our visit. That felt good. I highly recommend St. Catherine’s Interfaith Immersion Weekend to others. — Bettye Harris

We had an incredible summer in the St. Catherine’s Youth Program! For every week of the summer, we had a different outing, gathering, trip, service project, and/or party. All of this fun would not have been possible without the many volunteers who gave their time, energy, and resources to these many events. Enormous thanks go out to every volunteer who showed up, chaperoned, drove, planned, provided dinner, opened up their homes, or otherwise gave of themselves to help make our summer schedule such a success! We are so blessed to have you!
We will be working on the morning of Saturday, August 23 to get our wonderful Youth House beautiful and ready for the year to come! All youth, leaders, enterprising parents, and anyone else who wants to help out are encouraged to come out. Exact times and details will be announced in the near future, but go ahead and make your best effort to keep that morning clear on your calendar!
We will be holding a training for all Journey to Adulthood adult leaders in the Youth House on Sunday, August 24 at 1:00 PM. We will discuss some goals for the upcoming year, take some time to plan/schedule, and soak up the insight, experience, and wisdom of our guest trainer Tracey Herzer.
The St. Cat’s Youth will be serving dinner at Elizabeth Inn, an emergency shelter for those in need on Wednesday, May 28. You can meet us directly there at 5:30 (55 Elizabeth Church Road, Marietta, GA 30060) or catch a ride from St. Catherine’s at 5 PM. Please let Mike know if you plan to come and whether you will need a ride from St. Catherine’s. We always have a great time grilling and meeting people, so come join us!
