RCIA NEEDS NEW CATECHISMS
Our RCIA needs new Catholic Catechisms for our candidates and catechumens currently
preparing to join the Church. Catechisms cost $25. Donating would be a great way for you to
assist in the formation of our future members. Simply place a donation marked "RCIA Catechism"
in the collection basket, and your donation will purchase a new book for each member in RCIA.
Each book will be inscribed with "A Gift From …." unless you wish to be anonymous. Questions?
Contact Kevin F. Raymond at KFRaymond@cathedralnashville.org or 327-2330 x1306 for more
information. Thank you for your support!

This is a great program that the Cathedral participates in. Working with the homeless is a very rewarding experience, and is a great way to spend a Tuesday evening. Our guests are screened by the downtown Room In the Inn staff; are all nice, interesting, and enjoy good conversation. The homeless love coming to the Cathedral and request it every Tuesday. When asked why they love to come to the Cathedral, the answer is because of the people, that we are friendly, and that they are treated with respect. This is a great tribute to our parishioners!
THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN
Except at the Cathedral!
