Christ Church Cathedral

Share a story


With God’s help, Christ Church, a cathedral parish in downtown Nashville, proclaims by word and example the Good News of God in Christ, seeking and serving Christ in all persons.


Disciples who pursue the presence of God in prayer and in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist

Evangelists who make known God’s plan for reconciliation, that all may grow into the full stature of Christ

Servants who seek the face of Christ in every human being and strive for the justice and peace of God

Stewards who acknowledge and honor the Holy Trinity as the source of all, in the care of creation and the right use of our gifts and offerings

Friends who welcome the stranger, bear one another’s burdens, and share in the ministry of the apostles’ teaching and fellowship


Almighty God, you made us in your image and call us to share in the renewal of this world: Inspire us to seek and serve Christ in all persons, that the proclamation of your Good News in our worship, in our words, and in our work may lead us into the fullness of your love; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Sacred Ground Race Dialogue Circles

Racial Reconciliation
Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground is dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race, racism, and whiteness while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.

Sacred Ground is a resource coming out of Becoming Beloved Community, The Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. This series is especially designed to help white people talk with other white people, while being open to all racial/ethnic groups. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day – all while grounded in our call to faith, hope and love.
