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.

ATTENTION CATHEDRAL BLOOD DONORS

October 26th from 9:15-1:15 in the Fleming Center will be the third and last drive for 2014. Sign up is very simple and can be done three ways. To sign up online go to www.redcrossblood.org, click on "account login" at the top right hand side of the page, log in as "donor," enter sponsor code "cathedral019" and schedule your time to donate. By phone call Sally Stack at 298-2932. Or, signup in the vestibule after Masses on October 11-12th and 18-19th.  If you are 17 (or 16 with parental consent) weigh at least 110 lbs, and in good general health, you may be eligible to donate. The Red Cross continues to have an urgent need for  blood and platelet donations. The summer months can be the most challenging times of the year for donations as regular donors delay giving while they take vacation and participate in summer activities. On average nationally, the Red Cross must collect 15,000 blood donations every day for patients at about 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. It is the blood products on the shelves today that save lives in an emergency. PLEASE consider becoming a part of this very special group. 

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
