Saint Martha's Catholic Church

peace be with you

Welcome to Saint Martha's

Saint Martha's is a parish of the Diocese of Nashville located in Ashland City, providing the means of grace for Christians of Cheatham County. We welcome all the faithful, whether living nearby or passing through, for celebration of the Sacred Liturgy.

The parish is pastored by Rev. Fr. Benjamin Butler.

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible and unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

Religious Education

We have a robust and growing Faith Formation program. Catechism is extremely important for the faithful, and at St. Martha's we are passionate about establishing strong foundations for our youth. Through dedicated catechists, we provide children with the tools necessary to grow closer to God in prayer and love, to familiarize themselves with the Bible, and to learn the doctrines and traditions of the Catholic Church.

Our mission and prayer is for the families of St. Martha's to grow in faith through quality Catholic education.
