RCIA SPONSORS NEEDED
Have 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.

Are you up for the CHALLENGE? On Thursday, May 1st, 2014, Absolute Restaurant Consultants (ARC) will be hosting a Culinary Challenge targeted for the Top 25 Chefs in Nashville at the Cathedral of the Incarnation as a part of the San Gennaro MusicFest. Nashville's local challenge will be the first of 10 local competitions throughout the country including Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Maryland, Ohio, South Carolina, California and Louisiana. The 10 local challenges will also include a National Challenge which will be held in Nashville, TN with the winners from each local challenge.
Local executive chefs will nominate the chef contestants from within a 50 mile radius of Nashville. Only local chefs from restaurant groups that own less than 12 restaurants may compete in the challenge.
The Challenge will include a private tasting for 400 guests created by the 25 competing chefs. The 400 tasting guests will judge the competition by scorecard. The Challenge will be judged on "Best Taste Profile," "Presentation," and "Creativity." Each Chef will prepare and display one main entrée paired by one side item and accompanied by one dessert.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the San Gennaro MusicFest as well as a local charity fund of the chefs' choice. What is great about this event? Local! Local food distributor, local chefs, local guests, local charity, local culinary school mentoring, local music, and promoting a brand new local MusicFest! A caricature artist, mixology, and music will be part of each event. Complimentary wine, beer, cocktails and caricature drawings are included with the tasting tickets! Each Chef will be encouraged to allow a "Chef in Training" from Nashville's Culinary School to assist them during the challenge.
