Description:
Christ Church Cathedral, Houston is the cathedral church for the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. The congregation was established in 1839, when Texas was still an independent republic. It is the oldest extant congregation in Houston and one of the oldest non-Roman Catholic churches in Texas. Many Episcopal churches in Houston and the surrounding area were founded as mission of Christ Church, such as Trinity Church, Houston, founded in 1893.

Located at 1117 Texas Avenue in Downtown Houston, the current building dates from 1893. In 1938 the building suffered a major fire. One heroic firefighter diligently sprayed down the ornately carved rood screen to prevent its destruction. The rood screen survived with only minor damage.

Christ Church became the cathedral of the diocese in 1949.

The current dean is the Very Reverend Joe D. Reynolds.
