Thanks to your commitment to supporting our diocesan ministries, especially sharing the truth of our Catholic faith with the youth of the Diocese of Tyler, we've been able to hire a full-time youth minister.  Mark Knox started at the Chancery this week. It is eternally important to me and all of us that we share the treasure of our ancient faith, the faith of the Church that Jesus Christ founded, with our younger generations. In my latest edition of "On the Road" where I share my thoughts with you as I travel around the diocese, I talk about this vital ministry and what it means for the Church.
