Eucharistic Congress

The Diocese of Knoxville celebrated its 25th anniversary in grand fashion Sept. 13-14 as some 5,000 faithful from throughout East Tennessee and around the country gathered in prayer and song, fellowship and worship at the Sevierville Events Center to rejoice the Holy Eucharist in the diocese’s first Eucharistic Congress.
