Tie The Fence Pink

Christ Church Cathedral invites everyone to drop by and remember loved ones who are fighting breast cancer, who have survived breast cancer, and/or those who have passed. Pink ribbons will be provided by the church for you to write their names and then tie the personalized ribbons to the wrought iron fence on Broadway.

A Eucharist will be celebrated on the sidewalk on Broadway at noon. We will pray for all who have been touched by this disease, as well as the caregivers, physicians, and nurses who provide treatment to breast cancer patients.

As part of the Diocesan Day of Prayer, this powerful act of corporate prayer will serve to unite us as a common body of Christians in middle Tennessee as we pray for those who are fighting or have succumbed to breast cancer.

For more information, contact the Reverend Lissa Smith.

Holy Land Pilgrimage

"The way of pilgrimage has long encouraged the Christian to a closer walk with our Lord. This pilgrimage to Israel will be soaked in prayer, study, fellowship, and a desire to experience the land that gave rise to the witness of Scripture. We will follow the paths that led Jesus, Paul, Samuel, and David in and out of Jerusalem. We will walk the Via Dolorosa, stand on the steps of the synagogue at Capernaum, visit Calvary and the empty tomb, and worship at the Cathedral of St. George's (Anglican). I invite you to join us."
Peace, Timothy


Dean Kimbrough will serve as the Chaplain for this trip to the Holy Land. Come to the Dean's Forum on Sunday, September 29 at 9:45 a.m. in Parish Hall to learn more about the pilgrimage.

A Holy Week Contemplative Anointing Service

A Holy Week Contemplative Anointing Service

Based on a service written by Cynthia Bourgeault, this contemplative prayer service remembering Mary Magdalene’s steadfast presence throughout Jesus’ passion, crucifixion, and resurrection, which began with an act of anointing as she sent Jesus forth, sealed in love, to his death.
Utilizing a meditative rhythm of readings, chanting, and silence, this prayer service culminates in an anointing of one another, as we remember not only Mary Magdalene’s gesture of profound love for Jesus, but her intention to anoint him a second time on Easter morning when she witnessed Christ resurrected.
All are welcome. We will gather in the Chancel.
