Bio and Links
I am a Roman Catholic priest currently serving as the pastor of the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville, Tennessee. I was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, attended Notre Dame High School there, graduated from St. Meinrad Seminary College in St. Meinrad, IN, in 1977. I started graduate studies in Rome, Italy at the Gregorianum University and completed studies at the Catholic University of America. I received my Doctor of Ministry in Homiletics for the Aquinas Insititute of Theology on the Campus of St. Louis University in 2011. I have been "digging up relatives" since 1973.

Reverend Steiner,
I am not Catholic. In fact my father, born as Irish Roman Catholic as they come, lost his faith in a WII foxhole and brought my sister and I up atheist/agnostic. Nevertheless I have struggled across the course of my life to reach an appreciation of Catholicism. On behalf of the large chunk of my family stretch across the old Louisville-Nashville Railroad line who are Catholic, I want to say thank you for your efforts at recording their names and relationships here. Funny - I can not keep from thinking of the smell of wax, limestone,wood and old books just now. There are many Torpeys in Louisville, all my family, and many in Tennessee...most I think related to me.

Hope this Spring finds you in good health and humor,
Heidi Draffin (nee Torpey)

I recall that there was at Fr. Steiner at the Cathedral, I believe, in the 1960s. Is he a brother or Uncle?

Father, are you related to the Fraziers in Nashville?

I see that you attended St. Louis University, I received my AB and MBA there and a good friend there had left the seminary at St. Minraid (John Allen about 1970). My son is in the Seminary at Catholic U (ST. John Paul II seminary). You and I seem to have a lot of connections. In 1965, I said hello to Archbishop Sheen at the Cathedral while I was a senior at Father Ryan.

Good to connect with you Father.

RE: Michael Appleby
Small world. I actually graduated from St Jude as well. I guess my parents were a bit before you but always nice to meet a fellow alum.

Thank you for finding Michael's grave. When I found Find a Grave and wanted to honor a few NDHS friends that did not have memorials yet and I wanted to make sure that his story wasn't forgotten. Thank you for the photo and thank you for your prayer.

I've driven past your cathedral many times but never had the opportunity to attend Mass there. I think though a friend of mine is in the Knights there. Do you know Victor Evans?

Thank you for taking the time to find Michael's grave, a young man lost much too soon.

I see from your bio that you attended NDHS as well? I'm a 1999 graduate but my parents graduated in the early 1960s. Were you around then?

Thank you for your time and work
