Tyler Catholic Schools delivers the highest quality educational experience, grounded in the Catholic tradition, to shape the whole person; mind, body, and soul, through the teachings of Jesus Christ. To reach this high standard we have to strive continually for excellence in our schools.

One major step we can take to ensure that we always have good leadership and a competitive edge for our schools is to unify the administration of our Catholic schools in Tyler. I believe the time has come for this step.

Bishop Joseph Strickland has named Father Nolan Lowry as the new head of the Sanctity of Life ministry in the Diocese of Tyler. He replaces long-time director Father Gavin Vaverek.

Father Lowry, Pastor of St. Edward Catholic Church in Athens, Tx, is originally from Gilmer, Texas. He is a convert to the Catholic Faith, trained in Rome, and possesses a License in Sacred Theology with a specialty in moral theology.

Father Lowry said, “I am truly honored that Bishop Strickland has asked me to direct the Sanctity of Life Office for the Diocese of Tyler.  Building on the Pro-Life work of Fr. Gavin Vaverek for the last twenty-five years, I look forward to assisting the Bishop in continuing to proclaim the Church’s Gospel of Life in East Texas.
