“The Chosen is based on the true stories of the gospels of Jesus Christ. Some locations and timelines have been combined or condensed. Backstories and some characters or dialogue have been added. However, all biblical and historical context and any artistic imagination are designed to support the truth and intention of the Scriptures. Viewers are encouraged to read the gospels. The original names, locations and phrases have been transliterated into English for anything spoken.” (Angel Studios on-screen disclaimer before the start of Season One, Episode One)

St Joseph Small Faith Community Scripture Studies Offerings this fall

  All are invited to join our Scripture Studies! 

The Creed

Meets every other Wednesday at 2:00pm in the social hall beginning on Wednesday, Nov 9 . 

We will be following Bishop Barron’s THE CREED.  In Light from Light: A Theological Reflection on the Nicene Creed, one of the Church’s leading thinkers invites skeptics and seekers to discover the intellectual richness of the Catholic faith.  Walking through the ancient Nicene Creed, Bishop Robert Barron offers readers a clear and compelling explanation of the basics of the faith for a new generation, especially those who have wandered away.

Contact Kathy Morin at (865) 230-1390  or


Jesus the Way the Truth and the Life

Meets on the2nd & 4th Thursday of the month 7:00pm in the social hall beginning onThurs., Oct 27

This ten-week study program is presented by Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Edward Sri.  Filmed on-location in the Holy Land and anchored in the life of Christ as presented in the Gospels, this study explores the entirety of Jesus’life-who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, what He did for our salvation, and what all of this means for us Catholics today. All are invited to attend!
