Assistance for Tent Communities

Parishioners, Did you know that at any given time, there are 3-5 tent communities at the base of Lookout Mountain? These are folks who do not have permanent homes. In addition to non-perishable food items, baby formula and diapers, band-aids, and antiseptic, we are now preparing for the coming winter months by collecting blankets, coats, and socks for the tent communities in our area. All items can be dropped off at the church office or in the narthex before Mass.

COVID-19 Protocols

Currently, the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s policy regarding COVID 19 is that those who are unvaccinated must wear a mask inside of church buildings at all times. The archdiocese also “encourages everyone to receive a COVID-19 vaccine unless they have a medical reason not to do so.” This is the latest instruction from the chancery (archdiocesan office) in Smyrna, Georgia. Our Lady of the Mount and St. Katharine Drexel will continue to provide masks for the unvaccinated at all liturgies and other indoor parish events.
