It seems that every generation has a significant, tragic event that defines that generation, an event, after which, nothing is ever quite the same. In my generation, it was the Kennedy assassination. Even as a third grader, I had the dark, frightening sense that the things in the world we thought were solid and permanent, were in fact, not so solid after all. If this could happen, well, anything might happen. In my mother’s generation, it was Pearl Harbor. When the World Trade towers fell on September 11, 2001, I did what most of us did who were alive in those moments—we instinctively called those we loved. “Mama, is this like Pearl Harbor was to you?” I remember asking her on that 9/11 morning. “Oh no,” she said, “This is much worse. With Pearl Harbor, we didn’t see any images until days later, in the newsreels. We’re seeing this second by second.”
On this 15th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11, we do now what we did then. We turn to our faith for assurances that, even as human institutions are not as solid as we thought, God’s love and God’s healing presence abides. That no force on earth, no violence, no terrorism, not even death itself, can shake that Love.
Hymn #676, "There is a balm in Gilead"

A new Young Adult Ministry has begun at St. Catherine’s in conjunction with the Episcopal Campus Ministry at Kennesaw State University. The Young Adults group is now meeting at our church each week on Sunday evenings beginning at 7:00 pm. This ministry seeks to offer a safe place for young adults to build community and explore questions of faith as they encounter society independently as adults.
We would love for members of St. Catherine’s to fix and enjoy dinner with these students. The request is for dinner to serve about 15 people. Students eat a lot of pizza and microwave food and really enjoy having at least one home-cooked meal per week. You are welcome to sign up for just one date, but I would also love you to consider signing up to join us on a regular basis. There are some really great young adults involved in this ministry, it is a blessing to get to know them. To sign up or if you have any questions contact Sally Paris at email@example.com, 770-971-2839.
Tickets will go fast!
Good food, good fun, good music! Please join us for an evening of food and dancing at the annual Low Country Boil on October 1 at 6:30 pm in the Parish Hall. We supply the shrimp, sausage, corn, potatoes, beer, wine, tea, dessert, and music. You should bring your appetites and dancing shoes. The event is open to adults 21 and older. Tickets are $17.50 per person and will be on sale at church on Sundays until we sell out. (Please, no walk-ins for this limited-capacity event.)
Any proceeds from the evening will go to Episcopal Relief and Development. Please contact Elizabeth or Fred Lopez at eslopezcomcast.net for more information or to sign up to be part of the awesome kitchen staff!

Are you planning a donation to support the Memorial Garden project? Many people have told us “yes”, but haven’t gotten around to it yet — everyone is busy, and this is at the bottom of the “to do” list. We understand.
What we need: $50,920
All donors have the opportunity to remember a friend or loved one with their donation. A plaque will be mounted in the Administration Wing recognizing each donor. (You also can decline recognition -- just let us know!) Please donate now so we can enhance our existing Memorial Garden and create a sacred and affordable burial space for current and future members.
The expansion resolves many of the issues members voiced over the years.
Donations in any amount are welcome by check, or St. Catherine’s members may donate online via your account in The City. Please make checks to “St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church,” designate it in the memo line for “Memorial Garden Expansion”, and place in the collection plate on Sundays or send to the church office. See details of our plan at www.stcatherines.org/memorial-garden-expansion/ .
The church office needs volunteers for short shifts or half days when the parish secretary is out of the office or during times of heavy use (such as Christmas and Easter). Tasks include answering phones, greeting visitors and performing light office work. See the Volunteer Opportunities form in your bulletin or contact Becky Adams, beckystcatherines.org, 770-971-2839.
Our church flowers and altar candles are solely supported by your direct sponsorship of these ministries, and we thank you!
The schedule of upcoming dates is listed on the Volunteer Opportunities in your bulletin and available in the church office. You may sign up to dedicate altar flowers or candles in thanksgiving for or in memory of a loved one or special occasion such as anniversaries, birthdays, etc. Sponsorship of any date is not limited to one or two persons, feel free to choose the date(s) which apply to the persons or occasions you wish, and you may also partner with others to sponsor a date. Please remember to send your payment to the church office on or before your chosen dates. Flowers are $60 per vase and candles are $20 each.
The 2016 Hunger Walk/Run in March was an incredible success! Lindsey Hardegree, Executive Director of Episcopal Charities Foundation, has written to us at St. Catherine’s:
Our Outreach Ministry will choose a hunger-related ministry for this grant. Many thanks to Connie Bergeron, organizer of St. Catherine’s Hunger Walk team. And we give a special thank you to Daniel Mikkelsen who was our single largest fundraiser again this year. Also, note that EYC (youth of the Atlanta Diocese) were another of the top fundraising groups, many St. Catherine’s youth were contributors to the Hunger Walk by this designation.
Would you like to help serve our neighbors in need right here in our Marietta community? St. Catherine's volunteers serve meals and help with laundry every month year-round for the guests at MUST Ministries' Elizabeth Inn overnight shelter on Cobb Parkway in Marietta.
** REMINDER - when preparing or serving meals at Elizabeth Inn everyone must wear closed-toe shoes -- this is not only a safety issue but also a Cobb County health law.
Below - Dinner at Elizabeth Inn on August 28 for 60 plus lovely dinner guests and staff, with plenty of support and hands on deck from Fellowship & Invitation team members. Grillgenius burgers & dogs from Fred Massey & crew were again a huge hit, as was Jennifer's Massey's slam recipe for olive oil & parsley oven-roasted potatoes! Yummy fun. - Bettye Harris
The build began on August 13 with the house blessing and quick raising of the walls. Sign up to help or support the build with our $15 tshirts, contact Connie Bergeron, connieatlbergerons.net, 404-819-0891. St. Catherine’s volunteers are scheduled to help on the dates below at the build site on Lee Road in Mableton:
Highlights from the August Vestry retreat
By Bill Ivey, Junior Warden
Your Vestry met for our summer retreat on August 20 at Stan and Dani Dickson’s neighborhood clubhouse. They have provided a location for our summer Vestry retreats for many years and it was the perfect spot. We began with Morning Prayer lead by Father Dean.
Father Dean then gave us an update on the work that will be required of the Vestry during the transition to the new Rector. The Nominating Committee will provide the Vestry their nominees, then we will then have the opportunity to conduct additional review and interviews with the candidates submitted. The Rev. Hazel Glover, former Associate Rector at St. Catherine’s and Interim Rector at St. Paul’s Church in Newnan, is our consultant and will advise and counsel the Vestry during this process. We expect this part of the transition to take a short time, as the Nominating Committee will have done most of the hard work. Once the Vestry has reached consensus on a call for the new rector, and that call has been accepted by the candidate and approved by the Bishop, their congregation and our congregation will be notified at the same time. Our interim will leave three weeks before the arrival of the new rector and we’ll have a celebration to say goodbye and to thank the Nominating Committee for 18 months of hard work. As we approach the arrival of the new rector, we’ll form a transition committee which will handle the details of moving the new rector to Marietta (if necessary) and acting as our “Welcome Wagon.” We will keep you informed during the process. As we have said, there is no exact timing for this transition, but we think the interview process will take a couple more months.
Our business meeting followed:
By Pat Pepper, Coordinator of Volunteer Ministry
William Shakespeare said, “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” The following individuals have lived this quote from Shakespeare and for their time, talent and ministry we are grateful. Each of them will be resigning from these current positions and I invite you to join me in thanking them for their service. Each of them will continue to serve in other ministries at St. Catherine's.
Served 12 years in this position: He has helped design, build and maintain a variety of projects related to the computers and network at St. Catherine’s. During that time we have grown from 3 wired computer workstations to many wired and wireless devices throughout the entire church, Preschool and Youth House supporting well over 100 concurrent wireless users. In addition Paul assisted with installing the wireless connected thermostats which control the heating and cooling throughout our building. Paul has saved St. Catherine's thousands of dollars and has continued to say “Yes, I can” through all these years of growth and change, and has done it all with a calm and capable ability.
We do not have a current replacement for Paul and ask that if you or someone you may know with skills in any one or more of the following areas to please contact me or a Vestry member: Windows and Mac systems administration; network planning and maintenance; hardware and software selection, evaluation and maintenance.
For more years than Fred can remember, he has been responsible for making sure the laundry was done for the men who are clients of MUST Ministries’ Elizabeth Inn shelter. Once, often two times per month, Fred or the volunteers he recruited spent 5 hours per night washing, drying and folding clothing. Each morning, the men that had sought the shelter were able to leave in clean clothing because someone cared enough to give their time. Thank you, Fred, for performing a task that is humble and loving.
I am happy to announce that Dave Yucius has said, "Yes", and will be replacing Fred as leader of the MUST Laundry Team. Thank you, Dave!
Served in this position since 2007: Pastoral Care Ministry Team is the umbrella under which the following ministries fall: Calling and Caring, Congregational Nursing, Creation Care, Daughters of the King, Flower Delivery, Mentoring Youth, Pastoral Counseling, Prayer Chain, Sonshine Ministry and Stephen Ministry. Margaret has led these caring ministry teams with grace, and has given tirelessly in this position for 9 years.
With joy, I am happy to say that Julie Johnson has also said, "Yes", and will be replacing Margaret Shaw as convener of Pastoral Care Ministry Team. Thank you, Julie!
If you have a conversation with any of these dedicated volunteers I am sure they will tell you they have received more than they gave, and because of their service they have been blessed.

In mid-August, parts of the US Gulf Coast experienced historic levels of flooding, with many dead, and tens of thousands unable to return to their homes. Episcopal Relief & Development’s US Disaster Team has been in close contact with dioceses in the region and is providing support for their local efforts. The immediate response will help provide basic necessities to those most impacted. Affected dioceses will then coordinate with Episcopal Relief & Development to meet needs in the coming months and years. Currently, the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana, its churches and their ministries are reaching out to those in need of assistance, assessing what needs to be done and serving as best they can. “In a disaster like this, we work closely with local church leaders to assess what is truly needed,” said Katie Mears, Director of Episcopal Relief & Development’s US Disaster Program. “We have begun to provide resources needed to assist those most vulnerable.” Your support of Episcopal Relief & Development’s US Disaster Fund helps us respond to disasters. Get the latest information about how to help care for those affected by this crisis and make contributions at www.episcopalrelief.org/press-and-resources/press-releases/2016-press-releases/gulf-coast-episcopal-dioceses-respond-to-severe-flooding .

The Atlanta Diocese Commission on Human Trafficking is aware that many congregations have programs that help prevent the trafficking of children, even though that may not be the primary purpose of the program. In order to highlight these programs, the Commission has created an award called “Miriam’s Gift.” A cash award of $500 will be given to the program that best demonstrates concern for children at risk for being trafficked and the award will be presented at Annual Council in November 2016. The award is named for Miriam, the sister of Moses, who created a way to save her infant brother when Pharaoh ordered the death of all Hebrew baby boys.
There are many factors that combine to put children at risk for sex trafficking: incest and abuse, domestic violence, children who are runaways or “thrown away” by their parents , foster care, drug and alcohol abuse, low achievement in school, poverty, belonging to a vulnerable immigrant community, feelings of worthlessness. Programs that address children and youth who are at risk for trafficking are eligible for the award. Examples are after-school tutoring, mentoring, summer programs, healthcare, sex education, meals and housing.
Let the Commission to be aware of the good work in which you are already engaged on behalf of at-risk children. See information and the application form at www.episcopalatlanta.org/Parish-Support/human-trafficking-commission/. Applications are due by Monday, October 3.The Commission on Human Trafficking wants to honor programs that provide protection and care for at-risk children and help lead them into a full life in the Spirit.
