CATHEDRAL NOTES, NEWS AND EVENTS
Diocesan-Wide Congregational Survey
In Sunday's bulletin you will find a copy of the U.S. Congregational Life Survey (USCVS). All congregation in our diocese will be taking the same survey today. This will give us a snapshot of the diocese as a whole around seven aspects of vitality: discipleship, mission engagement, evangelism, leadership, worship, belonging, and health; to help determine diocesan priorities. The opportunity to take the survey is from a generous gift only available to us during this calendar year.
Please take the survey before the service or take a few minutes following. There will be a box on the front porch of the church, or in the Chapter House where surveys may be returned.
Sunday, December 15 at 9:30 a.m.
Come to church early on December 15 to see all your favorites including shepherds, animals and the Holy Family. Even if you do not have children participating, please join us in celebrating the story of the nativity with our children and youth. If you have a child between the ages of 3 years and 5th grade who would like to participate, please send your child’s name & age to Lissa Watkins at email@example.com.

Episcopal Presence at LoDa Art Walk
Friday, December 13
5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
The Episcopal churches of the Mobile area are coming together to invite the community to get to know the Episcopal branch of the Jesus movement. We have the capacity to share approximately 200 cups of hot chocolate and as many cookies as we can bring along with invitations to join us for Christmas Eve worship. Our goal for the evening is to let people in the community know that the Episcopal church is here and welcomes YOU--no matter how often or how little you have been in church, how joyful or blue the holidays seem, no matter what--we welcome you to be loved in our community of faith. So come join us for some festive fun! Sign up to bring cookies, serve for an hour, set up, decorate, or clean up by using this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f4eaca62aa02-episcopal or by contacting Lydia Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 251-377-7809.
