Dean Search Committee: Parish Survey Coming Soon!

Search Committee Update: Parish Survey Launches Monday, Sept 16th

We want to hear from you! Check your inbox Monday, Sept 16th for a link to our online PARISHIONER SURVEY. The survey will only take about 10 minutes, and your opinion matters to us. If you do not regularly receive emails from the church, please contact Emily Pratt at or Allison Musick at and make sure we have your correct email address on file. If you are unable to access the survey online—or know of a parishioner who does not have access to email, please call Emily at 901-527-3361, and a printed survey will be mailed.

The survey closes at midnight, Monday, Sept 30th. Thank you for taking the time to complete this important step in our search for a new dean. Your efforts will help to keep St. Mary's a vital parish cathedral, focused on the mission of transforming lives now and into the future.
