Episcopalians love to break bread together, and not just in our worship. St. Michael’s certainly bears this out.
CELEBRATIONS FOR THE CHRISTIAN YEAR
During Holy Week, we have an Agape Supper on the evening we remember Jesus’ Last Supper.
On the Day of the Resurrection, our Easter morning congregations gather for a delicious breakfast potluck and Men’s Bonnet Parade between the services.
On the Feast of Pentecost, fifty days after Easter, we recall the story of the Holy Spirit allowing people from many nations to hear the good news in their own language. During church, lessons are read in non-English languages and afterwards the luncheon includes parishioners’ food from their heritage groups. Many dress in wonderful ethnic outfits.
St. Michael and All Angels Feast Day in September is likewise observed not only in worship with special vestments but in a feast shared afterwards.
FELLOWSHIP FOR FUN
Most years, St. Catherine’s Guild sponsors a wonderful dinner dance before Lent begins. A wonderful time is had by all and proceeds benefit our youth and outreach ministries.
Later in the Spring, all are invited to attend a wonderful weekend retreat at beautiful Mikell Camp and Conference Center (campmikell.com) in Toccoa, Georgia.
4TH OF JULY PICNIC
A 4th of July picnic is held off-site. A cookout and potluck, it is a highlight of summer fellowship.
POTLUCK AND GIFT SWAP
As the Christmas Holidays approach, all women of the church gather for a potluck supper and silly gift swap.
Fall Festival, a BBQ, a Jumble Sale—are scheduled on a more or less annual basis.
