**Diocese seeking to Hire Christendom Alumni**
Recognizing the growth of the East Texas region, the Diocese of Tyler was established on December 12, 1986, by an Apostolic Bull of Pope St. John Paul II. The new diocese was created out of territory from the dioceses of Dallas, Beaumont and Galveston-Houston.
The diocese includes 33 counties and 23,443 square miles of Northeast Texas. The territory is divided into 52 parishes and 14 missions. The total population of the diocesan territory is approximately 1.5 million, of which about 130,000 are Catholic.
As of 2020, about 70 priests were in active ministry in the diocese with another 10 serving outside the diocese and 10 retired. There are also 97 permanent deacons in the Diocese.
