My Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

From November 12-15, I will be in Baltimore attending the Fall General Assembly of the Catholic Bishops of the United States. After beginning with a full day of spiritual discernment and prayer, the bishops will discuss and vote on a series of concrete measures to respond to the abuse crisis. There has certainly been righteous anger directed toward the bishops for the sinful behavior of some, as well as our failure to properly handle allegations of abuse, but with God’s grace, I am hopeful in our ability to implement the necessary reforms.  

After due consultation and prayerful reflection, and in order to provide for the proper care of souls entrusted to him, Bishop Joseph E. Strickland is pleased to announce the following pastoral assignments and appointments for the Diocese of Tyler. All changes are effective Nov. 1, 2018 unless otherwise noted.
