About Tekton Ministries

Tekton Ministries seeks to work in the spirit of St. Joseph. “Tekton,” or “τεκτον” in Biblical Greek, means worker or craftsman, and is the title given to St. Joseph as his profession. St. Joseph, our patron and namesake; the silent, hard-working step father who spent his life close to Jesus and Mary, gives us an example which we seek to emulate in the way we live and the way we do ministry.

We believe in witnessing the richness of our Catholic faith. We draw strength from the Sacraments and the Magisterium, and we incorporate the essence of our faith into our work by way of daily Mass, Adoration, Confession, Scripture, and Prayer.


To make a meaningful contribution to the Church by cultivating and increasing discipleship.


To lead people to Christ.

From the initial idea and every detail, we take a faith-based approach to all aspects of a pilgrimage as partners on your journey.
