For the past 13 years Brother John McMuldren has been Director of Guidance for grades 6 through 12 at Bishop Gorman High School in Tyler, Texas. The Catholic community in Tyler has been very small, but the school has been very successful. Visits by Brother John to the brothers at St. Edward's University have helped to strengthen ties to the congregation.

After high school John went to college a couple of years before entering the novitiate in 1964.

Between 1967-1980 Brother John had eight assignments including three to Holy Cross High School in River Grove, Illinois, where he served ten of his first 13 years. Brother John enjoyed Holy Cross with its "Good Friday Walk," food drives,float building,"mini courses," summer canoe trips to Canada with brothers and students, and college counseling.The second phase in Brother John's ministry began the summer of 1979 when he became Director of St.Theresa's Camp in Soldotna,Alaska.

Before going to Tyler in 1992, Brother John was a counselor at the University of Portland, Portland, Oregon; Headmaster at LeMans Academy, Rolling Prairie, Indiana; a student in the Dominican Republic; and took a six-month sabbatical at Columba Hall, Notre Dame.
