                           through the h a r d tiMes of life
                           Every Friday in Jerusalem you will find pilgrims walking the Via Dolorosa (Stations of the Cross). In “Way of the
                           Cross: Gateway to Resurrection,” Joan Chittister writes, “We pray the Stations of the Cross in both good times
                           and bad in order to learn how to live and to remember that when the dark days come we are not alone in them.”
                           The Rev. Canon John Peterson’s book “A Walk in Jerusalem” takes us on a walk with photos and meditations that
                           offer new insights into the Passion narratives. A book written for young adults, “At Jerusalem’s Gate,” by Nikki
                           Grimes and David Frampton offers beautiful woodcuts and poetry in a thoughtful framework for meditation. If
                           you have never walked the Stations of the Cross, these books at the Cathedral Book Store will inspire you.

       Charles Hall Retires after 33 Years of service at the Cathedral
                         Charles Hall is retiring on April 22. He has served the Cathedral faithfully for 33 years as a sexton. Originally
                         from Sandersville, Georgia, Charles moved to Atlanta when he was 18 and was employed as a landscaper at the
                         Atlanta Garden Center. In September 1978 he came to the Cathedral of St. Philip to work. At that time he
                         joined his mother, Laura Francis Pascoe, who worked at Cathedral Towers, and his stepfather, Frank Pascoe, who
                         worked at the Cathedral. Charles loves the church environment and offers this advice: “It’s always best to have a
                         good attitude when you’re dealing with people.” Thank you, Charles, for your good attitude, and for your many
                         years of service to St. Philip’s. If you would like to contribute to a financial farewell gift to Charles, please send us
                         a check made out to the Cathedral and marked as a “Gift to Charles Hall.” Your contribution is tax-deductible.
                         Contact Canon George Maxwell at 404-365-1088 or if you have any questions.
