New Faith Formation: Teachers for the Family
An online learning system that forms every catechist to teach the treasure of the Catholic faith to our families. Accessible anywhere, any time.

New Marriage Formation
Catholic formation that provides every engaged couple in the Diocese with a sponsor couple, spiritual retreats, and ongoing marriage support.

New Parish Resources, Events, Teaching Content
Teaching resources for parishes and missions, diocesan-wide teaching events, and online Catholic content for all.


Form New Priests

Your support provides East Texas with new, well-formed priests ready to lead and teach the Catholic faith.

Our diocese has been strengthened by many years of missionary priests. We must ensure our communities continue to have well-formed priests.
Local young men like Deacon Hector Arvizu ready to lead and to teach the Catholic Faith.


Care for Retired Priests

Your gifts provides senior clergy the home, care, and support they need in retirement.

Our Diocese has been blessed by outstanding missionary priests. Many of these men were with the Diocese from the beginning.
They have given of themselves, and have graciously served our parishes and missions. As they grow older, it’s time for us to provide them renewed care.
