St. Henry is a vibrant and growing community of faith with a place of welcome for everyone. We are over 2,400 families with a strong commitment to service and stewardship. We have been living and handing on our faith for over half a century here in Middle Tennessee. The weekend and daily Liturgies provide a beautiful experience of worship where we are nourished by the Word of God and strengthened by the Eucharist as we seek to live the Gospel of Jesus.
With a great variety of ministries, everyone has the opportunity to participate in the mission of the church. Our school, youth ministries and religious education program assist our families in handing our faith on to the next generation. With an openness to all people everywhere, we seek to live God’s call to be salt and light for the world, guided by the Holy Spirit and sustained by the Eucharist.
We hope you will find in us a home where God’s love welcomes you, inspires you, and enables you to live out your unique calling as the beloved son or daughter of God that you are!
Blessings in the Lord,
Fr. Mark Beckman
St. Henry Parish is a Roman Catholic community in the Diocese of Nashville. As a sacramental people, we seek to reflect the presence of Christ on earth, especially through the Eucharist.
Formed by our traditions, we strive to be aware of the realities of our day while maintaining a vision of the future that calls us to pray and work for the building up of God's kingdom through the preaching of the Gospel and service to those in need, in cooperation with people of other faith traditions.
It is our hope that God will allow us to grow in faith and love, as we share our gifts with others, and finally to enjoy eternal happiness in His presence.
