CFAC LogoThe Catholic Family Adventure Club is a social co-op that provides support and community to Catholic homeschooling families and those considering the vocation of homeschooling in the Tyler area of East Texas.

We provide our families with regular social engagements to develop and maintain relationships that support and encourage us as individuals, families, homeschoolers and Catholics.

What we do:

Support the Domestic Church

The traditional purpose of any Catholic homeschool group is to support and strengthen the Domestic Church of individual families and thereby build up the Kingdom of God. We provide a variety of activities and opportunities that foster a deeper love for Christ and the Catholic Church. We want to place before our children role models of virtue to follow as they journey toward heaven. We celebrate the liturgical year with joy and solemnity and help expose our children to the richness that the Church offers each of us.

It's easy for the enemy to divide Catholics over perceived differences. To counteract this, we invite all Catholic homeschooling families to join us in this fellowship regardless of your background and place in your faith journey.

Regularly Join Together

By providing opportunities for meaningful and consistent engagement such as monthly Mass attendance, field trips, park dates, and liturgical events, the Catholic Family Adventure Club hopes that all members will be able to build lasting friendships for both the children and the families. Check out our 2023-2024 Programming Calendar for more information.

Regarding Today's Events
CFAC Leadership Team

By now many of you are aware of the news regarding Bishop Strickland having been relieved of his position as the Bishop of Tyler. This sad news has elicited very strong feelings and emotions for all the members of our community. We want to remind everyone that, regardless of any personal feelings and emotions, this decision will change our diocese.

Bishop Strickland’s removal will affect all of us and our parish communities to varying degrees. Please be cognizant that regardless of personal feelings about this decision, none of us truly know how this will all turn out. Please be kind to one another as we all process and adapt to the new reality in our diocese.

The best way for us to get through this period of turmoil is to come together and support each other. As a community, let’s do the one thing we can do in a situation that affects us but for which we have no control: pray.

“O Jesus, I surrender myself to You, take care of everything!”

This simple but powerful prayer is echoed throughout the Surrender Novena, written by Servant of God, Don Dolindo Ruotolo, who served as Padre Pio’s spiritual director for a short time. Jesus spoke to him about total abandonment, and His words are shared in short, poignant, reflections for each day of this special devotion.

A digital copy of the prayer can be found here, Digital Download, courtesy of Healing Heart of Jesus (healingheartofjesus.com). Please consider praying it together as a family along with continuing to pray for The Church, her priests, bishops, and Pope.
