Fr. Jim's Corner

Dear Friends in Christ,


Hello and welcome to the St. Alphonsus web-site.  Our Catholic community has lived and spread the faith in Crossville and Cumberland County since 1954.  The parishioners of St. Alphonsus Church are known for their strong sense of hospitality, charity, and love of the Lord.  We constantly strive to remind each other the importance of these lived attributes because they are also the values of the early Church established by Jesus.  Whether you have been a member of  St. Alphonsus for years, or if you are new to our little corner of the world, I believe your time shared with us will be grace-filled. 

We continue to grow, not just in new individuals & families, but more importantly, as Christ's disciples and in our witness to the Gospel.  I invite you to join us and take your place as part of our parish faith story and tradition.  Together, we actively claim our beautiful Catholic faith and respond to our Lord's awesome challenge; "By this, everyone will know you are my disciples, if you love one another".

Grace & Peace to you,

In Christ,

Fr. Jim Harvey
