School Leadership

Letter From the Pastor

Dear St. Gregory Community,

Rev. Hank Lanik serves as President of St. Gregory Cathedral School, which celebrates over 75 years in Tyler.

“I am pleased to have Father Lanik in this position where he also serves as rector of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception,” said Bishop Strickland. “Joining with the effective administration that Michelle Caccitolo continues to provide as principal of St. Gregory Cathedral School, Father Lanik’s pastoral care and experienced leadership ensures that St. Gregory Cathedral School will continue to provide a second-to-none educational experience for students and formation of the total person according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

After serving for many years as director of The Pines Catholic Camp, Father Lanik entered the seminary and was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Tyler in 2011. He has served as pastor of several parishes, diocesan chancellor, and dean.

Beginning with St. Gregory Cathedral School, founded in 1946, and with the addition of Bishop Gorman School, founded in 1958, the Tyler community has benefited from the presence of Catholic schools for over 75 years. Both St. Gregory and Bishop Gorman have received the U.S. Department of Education’s Blue Ribbon Award and have been repeatedly recognized as among the top Catholic schools in the United States.

Letter from the Principal

Dear Parents and Students:

The 2021-2022 school year is one that will bring us opportunities to strengthen our academic excellence and express Christian values through our Catholic faith.  St. Gregory Cathedral School offers students the tools that enrich their scholarly and spiritual lives. Charity is at the center of our spiritual lives and helps to guide us daily. Our dedication to community service teaches our students to learn to Live Each day as A Disciple of Christ (LEAD). This allows for all St. Gregory students to develop a sense of commitment for their actions as they put others' needs first.  Together we lead by Jesus’s example and give to others as God gives to us. Our dedicated students will grow to be leaders and carry with them all the values they gained at St. Gregory Cathedral School.
