In 1925 the people of Christ Church voted to remain in downtown rather than relocate to one of the growing Houston suburbs. That historic vote exemplifies the Cathedral’s commitment to its unique location in the heart of the fourth largest city in the country. That commitment has resulted in the formation of dozens of ministries and organizations that seek to build up the community by representing the grace and mercy of God.
Operations such as Lord of the Streets, The Cathedral Clinic, Compass, and The Beacon, among others, were created by or with the help of the Cathedral. Through these ministries and numerous others like them, people living on the margins of our society are seen, their dignity respected, their lives restored. This is truly a place that seeks to transform the world for God by seeking and serving others in his name.
Following is list of organizations that were formed by the people of the Cathedral, either independently or in partnership.
