One thing I ask of the Lord, this I seek, to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. (Psalm 27)
On thirty-two acres located in downtown Nashville, St. Cecilia Motherhouse is an oasis on the north side of a busy southern city. It provides a peaceful setting with numerous reminders of our 150 year history that lift our hearts in joyful praise and thanks to God. St. Cecilia Motherhouse was completed in 1862. Additions in 1880, 1888, 1904, and 2006 completed the building. Today it houses the sisters in formation in our novitiate, the sisters who administer and teach at our schools in Nashville, sisters who serve the community through specific duties at the Motherhouse, and our retired sisters. The center of our home and our life is the beautiful Chapel of St. Cecilia. Here the sisters gather as a community three times daily, spending additional time in personal prayer and making frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament. We invite you to learn more about St. Cecilia Motherhouse through the gallery tour below.
