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.

St. Anne\'s Myrrhbearers make blankets for pregnancy center

The girls service group of St. Anne’s Church, (the “Myrrhbearers”) had the blankets they made together blessed by Father Stephen on Sunday, Sept. 30th. The blankets were taken to the pregnancy center the next morning, and they were so plush and plentiful that they filled up the two empty bins for "baby blankets" for boys and girls. Each girl signed their first name to a "Made with Love" tag from the St. Anne's Orthodox Church Myrrhbearers, which was pinned to each blanket, so that those who received them would know the care and personal attention that had gone into them.

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.

Travel Hiatus
24 Jul 2014 at 8:35am

I will be traveling to England later today (July 24) where I will be speaking at a conference. I will be visiting the Monastery of St. John the Baptist in Essex (where the Elder Sophrony is buried) following the conference. The upshot of all of that is that I will be able to check the website only sporadically  (if at all) for the next week. I ask your prayers for myself and my wife as we travel (as I will pray for all of you).

May God keep all of you and reveal His joy in your hearts!

Fr. Stephen +
