About The Diocese

Founded in 1838 by the Episcopal Church as a mission to the people of Texas, the Diocese of Texas has been guided continuously by the Holy Spirit to plant ministries and congregations to partner with and serve the wider community. Today, the Diocese of Texas spans nearly 70,000 square miles and encompasses 81 counties. Headquartered in historic downtown Houston with offices in Austin, Tyler, and Fort Worth, we are led by the Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle, ninth Bishop of Texas. We are nearly 450 clergy, 174 congregations, 70 missional communities, 27 campus missions, chaplaincies, foundations, institutions, and over 77,000 parishioners serving our neighbors. We embrace all people with mutual love and respect. We are one Church reconciled by Jesus Christ, joining God’s mission to reconcile others and build up the kingdom of God.
