ATLANTA—The Catholic-Orthodox Ecumenical Gathering will be Monday, March 6, at 7 p.m. at the Cathedral of Christ the King, 2699 Peachtree Road, NE, Atlanta.

Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory and His Eminence Alexios, Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of Atlanta, will officiate. The keynote speaker will be Deacon Steve Swope on behalf of Catholic Relief Services. Deacon Swope is a CRS Global Fellow and serves at St. George Church in Newnan.

The theme of the gathering is “Sowing the Seeds of Hope: The Plight of Refugees and Migrants.” All are welcome to attend.
