Cathedral of the Incarnation
Welcome to the
Cathedral of the Incarnation
 
The essence of the Cathedral of the Incarnation is not the brick and mortar out of which it is built; it is instead, the people who identify with it and who are bonded together by a common faith and a united sense of mission.

Our parish is a thriving community of more than 2,300 families representing more than 4,800 individuals in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee. The average age of our members is 35 although there is a good representation of individuals in their forties and older!  In this website you will find the breath of ministries active in this dynamic parish. The diversity of our ministries and parishioners is a reflection of God’s gift of Life.

The people of Cathedral rely on one another to build our parish, but their support extends much further than our corner on West End Ave.  Cathedral parishioners are active in outreach throughout our community and beyond our borders as we strive to reflect the Gospel message that “God so loved the world.”

We welcome you to our website. We hope it allows you to gain insight into the Cathedral of the Incarnation Parish Community.

May God bless you and strengthen you in mission and service.

Camp MarymountCATHOLIC SUMMER FAMILY CAMP
Camp Marymount is a summer camp for children owned and operated by the Diocese of Nashville. Marymount is also pleased to be the home of Grandma's Family Camp so families can enjoy the Marymount experience together!

Have you always wanted to give camp a try? Come to camp as a family April 10-12. The weekend will be filled with family fun and fellowship. Activities include canoeing, crafts, archery, evening activities, games, sports, campfires, and more. For information call 615-799-0410 or email lindsey@campmarymount.com.www.campmarymount.com

CHURCH ORGAN
Have you noticed the choir sitting to the right of the Altar at Sunday Masses rather than in the choir loft? Our pipe organ is as old as the church, slightly over 100 years old. Although it has been rebuilt and an electronic console was installed during its many years, the guts of the organ have lived out their life expectancy. Pipe organ repair is costly, so we are looking at options regarding what steps to take next for our most important musical instrument. In the meantime, duct tape, super glue, and prayer are the best friends of our organ!

Spiritual Adoption

LENTEN SACRIFICE FOR RESPECT OF HUMAN LIFE
We have the opportunity to "spiritually adopt" a child who is newly conceived this month. Not all newly conceived babies are allowed to be born. In fact, more than 3,200 babies lose their lives to abortion each day. It is these babies you are being asked to "adopt." You may "adopt" a child individually or as a family. Sign up after Mass this weekend. You will be asked to name the child for whom you will be praying, thereby acknowledging the baby's humanity. You will be asked to pray for your unborn child and for all unborn children, for the power of prayer is great. For any question contact Respect Life members Roy Silveira at roysilveira@gmail.com or Pam Holzmer at holzmer5@att.net.

ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER
CATHEDRAL is set-up to offer EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) for your parish offerings. Please CLICK HERE for more information about this program and to download the application form. You may also contact Lori Reddick in the parish office 327-2330 or by email at lreddick@cathedralnashville.org
