Welcome to Our Parish!

 

St. Anne serves a wide variety of Orthodox families and individuals in the greater Knoxville/Oak Ridge area. Founded in 1997-98 as a mission of the Orthodox Church in America, the parish has steadily grown to serve members from many international backgrounds as well as a wide variety of converts. We have members of all ages and an active Sunday School program for our youth.

St. Anne has been active in helping to establish other parishes, including St. Tikhon's in Chattanooga, St. Athanasius in Nicholasville, KY, St. Maria of Paris in Cleveland, TN, and Protection of the Holy Virgin in Clarksville, TN. We are very committed to the establishment of a vital witness to the Orthodox faith in this part of world. 

The parish conducts its services in English and follows the New Calendar. We offer classes year-round for those who are inquiring about the Orthodox faith or who would like preparation for being received into the Orthodox Church. Visitors are always welcome!

Feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions about St. Anne's or the Orthodox Faith.

Glory to God for all Things - Fr. Stephen\'s Blog
To Bear Our Sins
6 hours ago

From time to time I post an excerpt from other writings – particularly when they seem to resonate with the conversation here on the blog. I saw this recently published on pravmir.com. I’ve corrected the English in a couple of places but otherwise left it as is. It is a small sermon from the late ... Read More ›

Blessing the Bells of St. Anne\'s
The bells of St. Anne were baptized, chrismated, and named on the Sunday of All Saints, June 10, 2012.
 
Bells are the only objects to be blessed in such a manner. A bell reveals and makes present the voice of God - bells are called "icons" of the voice of God. With the blessing of God's voice we are called to worship. His voice joins ours in the chorus of joy and praise that is the life of paradise made manifest in the services of the church. Glory to God who has made such wonders in our midst!
 
 The Bell Stand Project was coordinated for St. Anne's as an Eagle Scout project by Peter Caldwell.
