Welcome Most Reverend David Talley!

Bishop David Talley will be installed as the bishop of the Diocese of Memphis on  April 2nd at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Please be aware that, due to space constraints, attendance at this event will be by invitation only. The general public will not be admitted, simply because of the limited seating available at the Cathedral.
