We recently received this note from an out of town visitor.
I’m in the US Army Reserve and was recently assigned to the 391st Engineer Battalion training out of the Donaldson Center here in Greenville. I live in Knoxville and worship at St Albert the Great Catholic Church regularly. I attended mass this Sunday for the first time and was in awe. Your parish is absolutely breathtaking. I have 18yrs of service with 2 combat tours in two wars and like to think of myself as pretty stoic and tough. I was overwhelmed to tears with the beauty of everything. Fantastic experience and a reminder of how beautiful our faith is. Thank You. Father Longenecker is a fantastic homilist. I enjoyed my time with you all and the presence of God immensely and look forward to next month to worship with you.
