About Us

We strive to provide our students at the St. John Paul II Center and on the campuses we serve with dynamic and orthodox formation which will enable them to succeed in the great quest of every human being: to be a Saint!

Our patron, St. John Paul the Great, often said, "Be not afraid!" With this at the forefront of everything we do, our campus ministry seeks to provide students a welcoming and holy environment where they can form authentic friendships, grow in a deeper relationship with the Most Blessed Trinity, and have fun too!

As you begin your academic career here in Tyler, or if you are a returning student or parent, I want to welcome you and encourage you to contact me anytime at fvreeland@dioceseoftyler.org

Our goal is to be a friendly, holy place for you while you are here studying at a college in the Tyler area, ultimately bringing you closer to God and closer to one another through the abundant life of faith offered to us in the Roman Catholic Church. Please pray for one another, and be assured of mine for you!
 
Once again, welcome!  And we look forward to meeting you!
