Welcome from the Director
Welcome to the Virtual Diocesan Family Room! This is a place for the diocese to connect during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the teaching arm of the Diocese of Tyler, Bishop Joseph Strickland’s St. Philip Institute offers you these resources to deepen your faith during this unprecedented time. Look for recordings of Sunday Masses, pastoral messages from Bishop Strickland, COVID-19 updates, help for homeschoolers, and more. Scroll down to browse a collection of our resources and our Virtual Bulletin Board where you can share what’s going on around the diocese. A mother myself, I know how hard it can be to find a new normal. Thank you for visiting our family room. Keep checking back. We will update frequently.
Gratefully in Christ,

Here are some practical, prayerful tips from Stacy Trasancos at the National Catholic Register to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus. The number of cases isn’t known. Therefore, the mortality rate cannot be known. What is known is that the virus spreads easily, even through asymptomatic individuals, and it leads to pneumonia. People who cannot survive pneumonia, especially the elderly, are most at risk of death. If the virus spreads too quickly, hospitals will be overwhelmed, and no one will have medical care. It’s up to each of us. Stop the spread.
Take the Challenge!
During the COVID-19 Quarantine, the St. Philip Institute and Bishop Strickland encourage you to Follow the Way of Christ. We offer our small catechism, approved by Bishop Strickland, downloadable for free. Use this book to work through the lessons using our videos and 10-question quizzes for each lesson. When you pass the quiz with 100%, you will receive a certificate by email. Collect them all to Follow the Way of Christ! Use this time to learn your Catholic Faith.
