Worship Service

Service for Worship

Our worship services flourish thanks to the support of many people.


Altar Guild

Dean Barkley Thompson713-590-3305

Time : 2 hours/month

The Cathedral Altar Guild welcomes men and women who are interested in preparing the Golding Chapel, the Chapel of the Christ Child, and the Cathedral for worship. This includes daily and Sunday services, weddings and funerals, and diocesan worship services. This dedicated team cares for all the sacred vessels, hangings, and linens, cares for and cleans the chancel, and arranges for the flowers that adorn our altars and sanctuary. 


Liturgical Lay Ministry and Worship Leaders

Dean Barkley Thompson713-590-3305

Time : Varies

With more than 800 Cathedral and Chapel services annually, the men and women of this ministry demonstrate their commitment on a regular basis. In their capacity as Lay Readers (licensed by the Dean), Lay Eucharistic Ministers, and Worship Leaders (both licensed by the Bishop), they are an integral part of our liturgical life. 



Dean Barkley Thompson713-590-3305

Time : 1.5 – 2 hours per month

Whether at a regular service, a funeral, or special event, the usher team is there to ensure success. Theirs is a ministry of hospitality and service to assure that all feel welcome while helping create a worship space that is dignified and well-ordered. 



Assisting Priest Ed Stein713-590-3307 

Time : 1.5 – 2 hours per month

Cathedral youth in grades 7–12 are encouraged to become acolytes. Acolytes assist the clergy in the many liturgies that are a central part of how we serve the parish, diocese, and downtown community. Serving at the altar is a meaningful way to become a visible presence in the life of the church. 


Worship Bag Crew

Minister for Children and Families KariAnn Lessner 713-590-3323 

Time : 30 minutes once per month

During the week, volunteers empty and resupply the children’s activity bags so that they are ready for use on Sunday.
