Catechist Conference 2021

Join the St. Philip Institute team for a dynamic day of teaching, prayer, and support for catechists in the Diocese of Tyler. This year we will host two separate events: a conference in Spanish and one in English. Our theme for this year’s conference is Proclaiming the Truth with Joy. Both days will be hosted at St. Matthew in Longview.

Catechists will have a chance to pray together with other volunteers from across the diocese, opportunities to meet people from other parishes, as well as hear inspiring talks from the staff of the St. Philip Institute and other leaders in parish ministry.
