Holy Resurrection Mission Parish" invites all who are  seeking to enrich their spiritual life with Christ to worship with us by participating in the Holy and Divine Liturgy.  By receiving God's greatest blessing in the Eucharist and through the hearing of His Word proclaimed, we express our thanks "We have seen the true light;  we have received the heavenly Spirit; we have found the true faith; and we worship the undivided Trinity, for the Trinity has saved us."

Now located at 1031 North Central Avenue, Knoxville TN, Holy Resurrection Byzantine Catholic Mission was established in 1999 through the efforts of the Archeparchy of Pittsburgh and the personal commitment of Fr. Thomas P. O'Connell, a priest of the Diocese of Knoxville, who has received faculties in the Byzantine Ruthenian Rite. Several families from the East Tennessee area were instrumental in the development of the "Mission Parish" and remain faithful and dedicated to the growth of the community. Fr. Deacon Ronald J. Volek ,ordained in 1977 in the Cleveland Diocese, has also been serving the mission since receiving faculties from Metropolitan Archbishop Basil (of eternal memory) in 2005.
