Vision Statement

Rooted in the God who loves us, we are missionary disciples through evangelization.

Mission Statement

Through the teaching office of the Bishop of Lubbock, ministering to the diversity of our diocese:
We support the parents/guardians as the first educators in the domestic Church;
We provide resources to pastors and local faith communities;
We accompany the people of God on their spiritual journey through multigenerational evangelization, catechesis, and formation.

Office for Marriage & Family Life

The Marriage & Family Life Office objective is to build up the Body of Christ by promoting an authentic, Catholic vision of marriage and family life. We offer programs for marriage preparation, marriage enrichment, marriage intervention, and natural family planning, which reflects our vision. Each year we celebrate marriage anniversaries of 25, 50, and beyond at the Marriage Jubilee Mass in the Fall.
