Holy Comforter Episcopal Church Atlanta

John Ray

Holy Comforter Episcopal Church is a diverse worshiping community in the heart of Atlanta that seeks to restore the human dignity of every person. About 60% of the congregation lives with mental illness. This diverse community gathers for the Friendship Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays, for a healing service and a community dinner on Wednesday evenings, and for Holy Eucharist on Sundays. Holy Comforter opened the Friendship Center in 1997 in response to reduced availability of day programs for people living with mental illness. It now serves from 90 to 125 people each Tuesday and Thursday.
