Cathedral Youth Ministries foster spiritual growth
Cathedral Youth Ministries offer high-quality spiritual formation opportunities within the context of a supportive community of adult sponsors.
Sunday school is key in this process, but spiritual formation happens in many different contexts outside of the Sunday school classroom including Sunday Night EYC, community and diocesan events, outreach and missions projects and leadership development opportunities. For more information, contact Minister for Youth and Young Adults Jeremy Bradley at 713-217-1349.

Destination Unknown 2018
Our popular Destination Unknown Lock-In for middle school youth returns May 11-12, 2018, with drop off at 5 p.m. and pick up at 10:30 a.m. This is an action-packed adventure where we will explore some of the exciting things Houston has to offer, while building up our community through fellowship.
In the past we have watched the bats on Waugh Drive, explored the Orange Show, played laser tag and gone bowling, and ridden box sleds downhill at Addicks Dam. The best part about the lock-in is that participants don’t know what they will be doing in advance. (But don’t worry, no one is ever disappointed.)
