As our Diocese continues to display our beautiful “Coat of Arms” across our communications avenues, churches, schools, and many more places, let’s pause for a moment to explain its meaning….
Our Coat of Arms has a Red Field with six small hills in white at the bottom, which was taken from the Coat of Arms of Pope Saint Paul VI, who established our Diocese more than 50 years ago.
At the top of our Coat of Arms are two wavy blue bands that represent the Mississippi and Tennessee Rivers. For the most part, our 47 churches are between these two rivers.
A Cross in the style used by Christians in the land of our Diocese’s namesake, City of Memphis, links Brothers and Sisters in the Catholic Faith across West Tennessee to each other and to the Church worldwide in a time of new Evangelization.
All Glory to God!
