Year of Faith

by Fr. Christian Mathis on August 28, 2012

Beginning on September 8, 2012, the faithful of the Diocese of Knoxville will have a unique opportunity to celebrate our Catholic faith in East Tennessee. Pope Benedict XVI has declared this coming year to be the Year of Faith. We also enter our 25th year as a diocese which gives us the opportunity to celebrate our small part in the story of the Church in a big way.

We hope that this website will help you in finding resources for celebrating the upcoming year of faith. We hope it will also be a place where you will visit often to learn about the history of the Catholic Church in East Tennessee. Thanks for stopping by!

      Yes it is. And I am already learning lots more about the history of the Church in our neck of the woods!

    Although I have read some bit-pieces of excerpts from 2nd Vatican Council, I didn’t know the number of official documents and now I know that, but also have a copy of them to read and hopefully gain a fuller understand of what the Church Bishops have passed on to this generation but for all future ones.
