Founded in 1893, Holy Comforter Episcopal Church, in the heart of Atlanta, seeks to restore all people to unity with God and with each other. About 60% of this congregation lives with mental illness and all of us participate in the life of community. The youth will travel during the Sunday school hour to arrive in time for their 10:30 am service. Lunch will be served after the service.

All Saints Episcopal Church, Atlanta
Ellis Hall




Ecclesia Ministries Network and Atlanta’s Church of the Common Ground hosted a weekend of conversation, sharing, feasting, and seeing (sites, need, and church) with a special emphasis on racial reconciliation in our churches and in our work.  The weekend was meant to help us collaboratively think critically and constructively about our leadership of street churches, that we would be encouraged to seek justice and love mercy, walking humbly, outside, with God.

Diocese of Atlanta - Verger Guild Photos




The Vergers' Guild of the Episcopal Church (VGEC) was founded in 1989 at St. George's Episcopal Church in Nashville, Tennessee.  On January 11, 1992 the 8th Bishop of Atlanta, Frank K. Allan called the vergers of Atlanta together to form a Chapter of Vergers affiliated with the VGEC, which would become the second local chapter of the national guild.
On May 22, 1992 St. Bartholomew's - Atlanta hosted a Service where newly elected Chapter Officers were installed. 

In 1996 the Chapter was formally named the "Mark Emory Graham Chapter."  Graham, a verger at All Saints' Episcopal Church in midtown Atlanta, was a founding member of the VGEC.
He was instrumental in promoting vergers in the diocese and in the founding the local chapter.


On May 27, 2004 the 9th Bishop of Atlanta, J. Neil Alexander, designated the Mark Emory Graham Chapter as an auxiliary of the Diocese of Atlanta, serving its people in the ancient and honorary function of verger in its liturgies, worship, and ceremonial occasions, and thereby entitled to all rights, privileges, and responsibilities thereunto appertaining.

The Mark Emory Graham Chapter has continued to grow to become the largest and the most active chapter in the VGEC.

Today we celebrate 25 years of the ministry of our Vergers to the 
Diocese of Atlanta
