For all other usages, please submit a request to the diocesan office stating the desired usage. For more information on these albums, contact The Rev. Canon Frank Logue.

Churches in the Diocese of Georgia
This album contains photographs of the sixty-seven churches, three chapels, and one convent in the Diocese of Georgia. Clergy or others in charge of local churches are invited to submit photographs to substitute for those in this album to the e-mail address listed below. Requests for assistance from volunteer photographers to take replacement photographs may also be submitted to this address.

Additional copies of that poster are available from the diocesan office. This album will remain online as a visual resource for the Diocese, and new photographs may be added from time to time as circumstances warrant.
