Welcome to the Cathedral of the Incarnation

“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us” John 1:14 

Dedicated in 1914, our Cathedral is very blessed to serve as the Mother Church of the Diocese of Nashville and as the Cathedral Church of our bishop. Recently renovated and lovingly restored, it is a beautiful place of worship dedicated to the honor and glory of God.  It is also the spiritual home of a very dynamic, joyful and welcoming community of faith.  Our very vibrant ministries of worship, education and service provide many opportunities to get involved in the life and outreach of our parish.

We are committed to inviting and supporting every parishioner and visitor to build God’s Kingdom through prayer, service, and outreach to those we encounter. Working together, we desire to build a strong parish community where all feel welcome and inspired by the Gospel values we seek to live out in our daily lives.

It is my fervent prayer that your personal experience at the Cathedral will bless and deepen your faith. If there is a personal or family need that arises, please know that our parish staff is always available to assist you in any way we can. You can find many of our contacts on this website or ask our parish office for assistance.

I am grateful for your support of the Cathedral. May you find warmth, encouragement, and spiritual growth here. God bless you and your family.

In His Love,

Fr. Eric Fowlkes, Pastor
