Sean and Andi McGee of Newnan were honored recently at the Cathedral of Christ the King near Sharpsburg.
Bishop David Epps, pastor of the church and bishop of the Charismatic Episcopal Church’s Diocese of the Mid-South, declared June 3 to be “Sean and Andi McGee Day” at the church. The McGee’s have been active in Christ the King for nearly all the church’s 16-year history.
Their oldest son, Tristan, was the first person baptized at the church. Tristan, now 16, missed the event as he was on a youth mission trip in India.
Sean McGee, Epps noted in the proclamation, served the church as a musician, singer, technical adviser and worship leader. He was the first person in the diocese to be installed as a commissioned minister in music and worship.
Mrs. McGee was recognized for serving as a audio technician. She also was instrumental in encouraging several of the women in the church to take up running, and some since have entered marathons or half marathons.
In a reflective moment, Epps remembered that he had known Sean since he was about 6-years-old, prayed for him when he was in the Navy, had married Sean and Andi and had baptized all their children. Rainee Head, a video and projection technician at the church, prepared a four-and-a-half minute slide presentation that preceded the proclamation.
