Celebrating 175 Years of Mission

A Diverse Community of Believers

Following the Episcopal tradition across our 81-county diocese from Houston to Austin, Waco to Tyler, and all the way to Fort Worth. Our parishes are large and small, contemporary and traditional. Let us help you find a worship experience that will bring you a meaningful experience with a lively and growing community.

We believe that God loves us all – no exceptions.

As Episcopalians, we believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death and resurrection saved the world.
