Reception – the rite available to those who have been baptized and confirmed in a denomination other than 
the Episcopal denomination, and who desire to join the Episcopal church.

Reaffirmation – for those who have been baptized and made a mature commitment of faith at some point in 
their lives and are seeking strength and the reaffirmation of their faith journey through the Holy Spirit in 
prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.
If you have any questions, please contact Beth Royalty.

INVITATION TO JOIN THE JONATHAN MYRICK DANIELS AND OTHER ALABAMA
MARTYRS PILGRIMAGE – AUGUST 9

The Commission for Dismantling Racism from the Diocese of Atlanta invites anyone interested to
take part in the Jonathan Daniels Pilgrimage to Hayneville, Alabama on Saturday, August 9. If you
are interested in joining Rev. Royalty in a group from St. Mark’s that day, please let Beth know via
email – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or by calling the church office at 706-278-8857. You may know
that Jonathan Daniels was a seminary student from Episcopal Divinity School when he responded to
the call of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to come to Alabama to help in the human rights struggle there.
He was shot and killed during his time there. This Pilgrimage is a small way for us to connect to the
spirit of the sacrifice that was made by Daniels and so many others. It is especially pertinent as we
remember this summer the “Summer of Freedom” of 1964 that took place in so many places across
the south but particularly in Alabama and Mississippi, and as we remember the 150th anniversary of
General Sherman’s March to the Sea, which started in the Dalton area.
