Appleton's Annual Recognition of the Deaconesses of the Order of St. Katharine

  • St. Paul's Episcopal Church 753 College Street Macon, GA, 31201 United States (map)

Please join us for the 4th annual celebration and recognition service honoring the Deaconesses of the Order of St. Katharine, one of the earliest orders for women in the Episcopal Church.  The deaconesses were women of great faith and grace who administered the Appleton Church Home, rearing and educating girls from 1870 to 1937.  The 110th Annual Council of the Diocese of Atlanta resolved to recognize these noble women as the first saints of the Diocese of Atlanta.  Canon John Thompson-Quartey will deliver the homily and Father Bryan Hinson will be the celebrant.  After the worship service, a summer supper will be served in the Parish House.
