Cathedral Library & Archives

Regular Hours: Sundays from 10-10:25 AM and following the 10:30 am Worship Service.


The mission of the Library at Saint John's Cathedral is to develop an inviting environment that is conducive to deeper understanding and knowledge regarding Christianity, theology, spirituality, and how we can best express these in our world. The Cathedral Library is committed to providing quality Christian media to St. John's parishioners as well as to members of our sister parishes in the Diocese of East Tennessee.


The Cathedral Library has many wonderful books and resources available ranging from interpreters bibles, commentaries, spiritual formation, novels, selections on history, gardening, cooking, and music. Children and juvenile materials are also included in the collection.


For questions about the library, or to volunteer, contact the Cathedral Librarian, Rick Boyd.

Books and Breakfast March 23.001.jpeg

Join us for a new book club where members are invited to talk about books they are currently enjoying or have enjoyed based on a theme of the month. Discussions will be accompanied by a light breakfast. There is no designated book of the month and no pressure to speak during a meeting. Just a love of books and fellowship required! "Books & Breakfast" will meet next on Sunday, March 26th in the Great Hall at 9:30 am . The theme for the March Gathering is "Taking on and letting go."  This theme incorporates both Women's History Month and the Lenten season. There are times when we must take on social injustice, deeper reflection, forgiveness, and empowering ourselves and others.  Likewise, there are seasons when letting go of societal norms, hurt, and temptations better serves our communities and ourselves.
