Year of Faith

Deacon Scott Maentz Catechism, Vatican II, Year of Faith

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!
