Justice, Peace, Human Dignity

The final promise of our Baptismal Covenant urges us to:


Strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being. 



The Episcopal Diocese of Texas is committed to ensuring that its churches, schools, and institutions live out our Baptismal promises by providing an environment free of abuse, exploitation, and harassment. Through the ministries of Safe Church, The Diocese of Texas provides resources to ensure that every person’s dignity is respected and protected. For more information regarding Safeguarding programs, please contact our Safe Church Minister, the Rev. Canon Carol Petty.
