The Bishop Miles Society held its annual Dinner and Meeting on Thursday, April 20, at Cheekwood in Nashville. The Society, which makes grants to small and rural parishes in the diocese for a variety of capital improvement projects, voted to make two grants: $25,000 to St. Michael Mission in Robertson County to pay for needed repairs in preparation for the church's celebration in the fall of the 175th anniversary of its founding; and $25,000 to Holy Family Church in Lafayette to help pay for the construction of a new church. The Society also elected new board members. Paul and Jean Kleine-Kracht were re-elected as co-chairs and Joe and Margie Imorde were elected as co-vice chairs. Jean and Paul Kleine-Kracht lead the meeting. For more information about the Bishop Miles Society, to become a member, or to make a donation, contact Sandra Jordan, 615-783-0267 or email@example.com.

The Bishop Miles Society
“The Society is a reminder to parishes that we all make up the Diocese of Nashville. The funds provided through the grants not only provide much needed funding, but also provide the feeling of oneness with others in the diocese.”

Bishop Miles Society’s 2016 Grant Award winner
Your contributions can help to fund the following projects:
St. Michael’s Mission in Cedar Hill, TN is the oldest continually operating Catholic church in the state. St. Michael’s Mission is in need of assistance to make repairs to the church building in preparation for their 175th Anniversary.
Holy Family Catholic Church in Lafayette, TN is in the process of building a new church facility. Holy Family, Lafayette in 1982 moved into what was the basement of a never-built Protestant church. Your assistance is essential to assist this faithful community to build a new workship and classroom space.
St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Nashville, TN needs a roof replacement in the near future.
St. Christopher Catholic Church in Dickson, TN needs to expand their Narthex in the near future. This community, which gave us Rev. Michael Fye, needs your support.
Thank you for supporting these parishes.
