Description of the St. Cecilia Motherhouse from the website of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia:

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.
