On nineteen 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 one hundred and fifty 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 over 230 sisters, including those in formation in our novitiate, the sisters who administrate and teach at our schools in Nashville, and our retired sisters. The center of our home and our life is the beautiful Chapel of St. Cecilia which was dedicated on December 23, 2005. 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 our Motherhouse.
