St. Martin's, Houston, to Hold Ceremonial Groundbreaking with President Bush

President George H. W. Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush will be special guests at a ceremonial groundbreaking event on Sunday, April 10, at 10:15 AM at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, 717 Sage Road at Woodway.


Last year, St. Martin’s embarked on a capital campaign and successfully raised over $18 million dollars for the construction of a new Youth and Young Adult Center, a new Scout Hut, and a new building entitled The Hope and Healing Center.


Planned for the far eastern side of ourproperty, the Hope and Healing Center will be the new home for some of the pastoral care groups, recovery groups and 12-step groups. It will provide a comprehensive ministry of awareness, prevention and recovery for families and individuals in all stages of life. 


The new Scout Hut will be given in thanksgiving for friends, members and leaders, President George Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush.


St. Martin’s is a vibrant, growing parish with more than 8400 baptized members. It is the largest Episcopal Church in the United States, based on baptized members.
