Our Vision

All God's people will be served by the evangelization efforts of ministers from the Secretariat for Pastoral and Educational Ministries in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Our ministry will celebrate the rich multicultural community of the diocese as we collaborate to promote the values of life, justice and peace and to be worthy stewards of the resources God has afforded us.


Our Mission

We are a diverse community of ministers under the leadership of our bishop who collaborate to accomplish the pastoral and educational mission of the Archdiocese through teaching, learning, praying, and celebrating.
