Youth ministry in the Diocese of Tyler will have a new focus and energy with the addition of Mark Knox as the diocese’s full-time Director of Youth Ministry, Bishop Joseph E. Strickland has announced.
Knox, who will begin his duties in Tyler in January, comes to the diocese with almost ten years of experience in youth ministry. Most recently, he managed the youth and young adult programs for Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Colleyville, Texas.
High School-aged students from across the Diocese of Tyler are invited to attend the 2015 “To the Heart” Retreat, Fr. Justin Braun, director of youth ministry, has announced.
The theme “To the Heart” is to not only to focus on keeping Christ in our heart, but also to live out our baptismal call as Catholics to witness to the truth from our hearts that are filled by the Holy Spirit. This is why we pray, “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful…”
