St. Philip Institute:

Consistent with the command from the Spirit for St. Philip the Evangelist to teach the Ethiopian in the chariot, Bishop Joseph Strickland announced that the Diocese of Tyler would be “a teaching diocese.” In his Constitution on Teaching the Catholic Faith, Bishop Strickland founded the St. Philip Institute and charged it with providing the parishes of the Diocese with the materials, expertise, and support to perform the mission of teaching as outlined in the Constitution. The St. Philip Institute provides the Diocese of Tyler with the materials, expertise, and support to teach and share the Catholic faith.
