Cathedral of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Knoxville, TN

Over twenty years after becoming a Diocese, the Cathedral Parish of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus moved out of the high school chapel and into the Cathedral they have always dreamed of in 2018. McCrery Architects designed the impressive new cathedral and EverGreene was commissioned to develop and produce the liturgical artistry program.

Notable elements include murals in the 90’ cupola featuring the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus in the company of Mary, Joseph, and twelve apostles bearing instruments of their martyrdom; lower registers feature sixteen saints walking in the new Eden; Veil and jewel motifs; scripture; Evangelists and tetramorphs in the pendentives; and a subtle shimmering pattern on the sanctuary wall recalling the Jesse tree at San Clemente.
