The Diocese of Tyler is looking for an Administrative Assistant for our Planned Giving and Foundation Director. If you are planning to move to the Tyler area or have any interest in doing so please check out this link which offers the basic information.

The Diocese of Tyler is a dynamic local Church in the universal Roman Catholic Church.  We are striving to teach and live the fullness of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ with all of its challenges and blessings.  The diocese covers 33 counties in far northeast Texas in an area often called the Piney Woods.  The diocese is somewhere between 5 and 8% Catholic with the majority of the population being evangelical protestant and deeply committed to Jesus Christ.  As Roman Catholics seeking to live our ancient faith in joyful orthodoxy avoiding the confusion and compromise that plagues so much of the Church today we find ourselves at home in many ways with our evangelical bothers and sisters. The issues of the sanctity of life from conception to natural death, sexual morality as guided by the Churches ancient moral teachings and the importance of marriage between one man and one woman open to the conception of children are only a few of the ways we find ourselves on common ground with fellow Christians in East Texas. 

If this description interests you and you have a background in Development in a Catholic Diocese I invite you to visit the link.

God Bless You, +Joseph
