We are an open, loving and diverse parish that welcomes all who love God. Our membership includes traditional families as well as singles and committed partners. All have found a home in the Cathedral, and all are invited to take an active part in its ministries.
The Community Life Council offers opportunities to strengthen spiritual and social relationships through a variety of community-building activities and events. The council is responsible for the annual parish retreat at Camp Allen, Episcopal Night at the Ballpark, Foyers supper groups, the Labor Day Sunday brunch and Shrove Tuesday pancake supper. It also hosts Bridge at the Cathedral for those who enjoy playing cards.
The Pastoral Care Council organizes and provides compassionate, emotional and spiritual support to the Christ Church Cathedral community. Council members deliver altar flowers, send greeting cards and make telephone calls to those needing support.
The Membership and Evangelism Council seeks to facilitate growth in Christ Church Cathedral membership and spread the news of the Cathedral. The council strategizes and organizes ways to invite and welcome visitors to the Cathedral. It also hosts Welcome Dinners for newcomers and organizes the Greeters program.
The Cathedral draws its members from throughout the Houston metropolitan area, with members from 175 of the 600 zip codes in the city. Some commute 30 minutes or more to attend and most pass other Episcopal churches on the way. Membership is predominately white, college-educated and comparatively affluent and increasingly includes active communicants who are members of minority groups. Members value the diversity and inclusivity of the community, calling it a space that welcomes everyone’s voice. The community is open to questioning and encourages thinking and dialogue.
