Patriot Catholic and Apache Catholic are the governing bodies for all UT Tyler and Tyler Junior College students, respectively. These organizations allows the St. John Paul II Catholic Campus Ministry access to activities and space on both college campuses and contributes greatly to the work of the ministry.
All UT Tyler students are welcome to be a member of Patriot Catholic. At Tyler Junior College students are welcome to become a member of the Apache Catholic. A $25 membership fee each year gives you a t-shirt and access to all events and also makes you a main contributor to the great work of evangelization happening at the ministry and on campus.
Officers of Patriot Catholic and Apache Catholic are elected each April from among their peers, and they are responsible for organization major activities like outreach on campus, volunteer events, community-wide parties, and much more!
The St. John Paul II Catholic Campus Ministry and Student Center serves and supports both the UT Tyler dnd Tyler Junior College Campuses and their respective Catholic student organizations.
