Christ Church Cathedral
The church was founded in 1839, making it Houston’s first religious congregation! From its beginnings, the church has served people of all religions and races in order to develop a sense of community to the small town of Houston. In the first years, the church conducted funerals for Roman Catholics, weddings for Jews, and taught the word of Christ to the children of the town slaves. Now, the church still welcomes all people to come and celebrate in their church. The Christ Church Cathedral has grown immensely since its 1839 days, yet still utilizes the historical building that was constructed over 170 years ago. The building itself has a breathtaking cathedral that also serves as the symbolic center of diocese for the city.
