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.

RCIA SPONSORS NEEDED
RCIAHave you thought about being a sponsor for someone that might be looking to join the Catholic Church? Our RCIA Program here at the Cathedral is looking for sponsors for Candidates and Catechumens on their journey into the Catholic Faith. The role of a sponsor is that of a Catholic "friend" to help walk the walk on a person's faith journey. You don't need to know everything there is to know! You simply need to give your time and your friendship to a person who may be searching. Our RCIA meets every Thursday evening from 7-9 p.m. in St. Albert Hall. There is generally a lot of interest immediately after Easter as well as at the beginning of a new school year. Interested? Contact Kevin Raymond at KFRaymond@cathedralnashville.org or 615-327-2330 x1306 for more information on how you can help or to answer questions you may have.
