Catholic Diocese of Tyler celebrates 25 years


On Saturday, hundreds gathered in Tyler's Cathedral of Immaculate Conception.

A traditional Mass was part of a ceremony to celebrate the Catholic Diocese of Tyler's 25th anniversary in East Texas.

Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Galveston and Houston also attended the celebration.

The Diocese was created in 1986. Those who attended the celebration call the event a milestone in the East Texas Catholic Community.

"Oh, it was beautiful. It was very beautiful. It was something I will never forget. You don't forget something like this," said Betty Murphy.
