Christ Church Cathedral is an open and a loving community of faith where we welcome all, members and non-members alike, to worship and participate in the life of the church.
Membership is the intentional way for parishioners who consider the Cathedral their church home to strengthen their sense of belonging and personal connection with the church.
Membership in the Cathedral is a commitment to call this community your spiritual home. To become a member, reach out to Canon Vicar Kathy Pfister (713-590-3309) or another member of the clergy staff, and together you can have a conversation about whether it’s time, and how to continue on your journey of faith. There is some paperwork (this form) but mostly being a member means choosing to become a part of the shared life and work of the Cathedral. Together, we are living out the vision of how God is in the midst of the city, and in the midst of us.
How to become a member
The only requirements for becoming a member at Christ Church Cathedral are that: (1) you are baptized, and (2) you have indicated your intention to become a member by completing and returning the Membership Information Form.
If you are not yet baptized or uncertain if you are baptized
Holy Baptism is the sacrament through which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ’s Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God. We baptize people of all ages — infants to adults — and would consider it a blessing to guide you through the baptism process. For more information, contact Baptism Coordinator Louise Langford (713-590-3305).
Transfer your membership
All we need to record your membership is (1) your baptism information including baptism date and the city, state, and name of the church in which you were baptized, and (2) your completed Membership Information Form. If you are uncertain of your baptism date, as previously not all churches kept such records as they do today, provide us with the best information you have. For more information, contact Manager of Human Resources and Parish Records Ramona Sikes (713-217-1347).
Become an Episcopalian
We encourage you to explore being either confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church. Christ Church Cathedral offers a Sunday-evening educational series, “The Anglican Way,” open to any adult interested in joining the Episcopal Church or to anyone wanting a great refresher course about the church. The class is free and covers a number of topics including the prayer book, the sacraments, church music, church history, outreach, and other points of interest. For more information, contact Canon Vicar Kathy Pfister at 713-590-3309.
There is a separate confirmation process for youth. For confirmation of youth, contact Minister for Youth Marcia Quintanilla at 713-217-1349.
Change of member information
If your name, address, phone number, email, or family status (due to a wedding, birth, death) has changed, please contact Manager of Human Resources and Parish Records Ramona Sikes (713-217-1347) with the information, including dates.
We’re glad you’re here!
We welcome your presence as part of our active and inviting community of faith. If you have questions about membership or want to learn more about Christ Church Cathedral, contact Canon Vicar Kathy Pfister.
