We are a Catholic apostolate dedicated to building a culture of life and love, through integrated education initiatives that proclaim the gospel of life and form families as intimate communities of love.

The St. John Paul II Foundation is a national Catholic apostolate recognized by His Eminence, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, as a private association of the faithful. 

Our mission is one of education and formation. We endeavor to be rooted in the Gospel, the Good news about the preciousness of every human life, the beauty of marriage, and the great good that is the family. Though concerned by the culture in politics and by a public square that grows increasingly hostile to people of faith, engaging in political activism is not our mission.

Our board of directors, advisory council, chaplain, and staff include exceptional lay men and women, priests, and Bishops. Together we proclaim the gospel of life and form families as intimate communities of love.

With headquarters in Katy, Texas, we are a 501(c)3 organization. All charitable contributions are tax deductible as provided by law.

Grounded in the life and teaching of John Paul II and with roots firmly planted in Texas we are proclaiming the gospel of life and forming families throughout the nation.
— Arland K. Nichols, Founding President

Saint John Paul II’s love of the family is a reminder that our Church, and Catholic organizations like the St. John Paul II Foundation, must lead a cultural renewal so that our society will once more see that marriage is sacred and that the family is the true sanctuary of life and the heart of a civilization of love.
— Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles

And may the world of our time...be enabled to receive the good news not from evangelizers who are dejected, discouraged, impatient and anxious but from ministers of the Gospel whose lives glow with fervor, who have first received the joy of Christ.
— Pope Francis
