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.
