Our parish is located in the heart of the scenic East Tennessee, not far from Knoxville and the Great Smoky Mountains. Whether you are from this area or visiting, we welcome you to join us.
Reconciliation is available Tuesdays at 6:00PM and Saturdays from 3:00 to 4:30 PM. (Except Holy Week, see Holy Week Schedule)
You may also call the parish office to make an appointment at 865-986-9885.
Beginning Tuesday, April 22 we will more fully use the controlled access doors to the parish family life center. This means that you will need to go to the left-most door to the parish family life center to be buzzed into the building. Next to the exterior controlled access doors, there is a camera and intercom so that we can monitor who is coming to the door.
All of the PFLC exterior doors will remain locked at all times, except for Sundays or when other large activities/events are going on. If you have a building key, that key will still work and you will not set off any alarms by using it.
In addition, the interior office door now will remain locked at all hours and you will need to be buzzed into the office.
Eventually, all keys will be virtually eliminated and anyone needing access to the building after-hours will receive a card-key.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this transition,
Fr. Doug and the parish staff

Please help us to be attentive to those who are ill, homebound or in the hospital. Either the patient or family member must notify the parish office (865-986-9885) if they or a family member is ill or in the hospital. (We will not be notified by the hospital due to patient confidentiality.) Communion can be brought to the home or healthcare facility.
