About Luke Heintschel
Luke earned a bachelor's degree in Communications with a double emphasis in Philosophy and Theology, as well as a Master’s degree in Biblical Theology, from John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, CA. His award-winning Master’s thesis studied the theme of Priesthood throughout the Old Testament and the Gospel of John. Luke moved from his home in San Diego to Tyler, TX with his wife (Gabriela) and son (Joseph). He has a zealous desire to help Bishop Strickland implement the Constitution on Teaching.

The Catholic East Texas is the magazine of the Diocese of Tyler published by Bishop Joseph Strickland’s St. Philip Institute of Catechesis and Evangelization.
