On August 9, 2013, more than 1,400 teachers and school administrators from primary Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston will celebrate the beginning of the new school year with a Mass and awards presentation led by Daniel Cardinal DiNardo.
When we think and hear about high school students today, it’s not often we hear about them talking and celebrating their faith, but that’s exactly what will be happening this weekend, July 19-21, at the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston’s Archdiocesan Youth Conference (AYC).
Over the next week, approximately 200 young people from parishes in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston will be packing for a 15-hour flight to Rio. For many this will be their first time in Brazil and at the international event.
On Saturday, June 1, 2013, Catholics throughout the Houston-Galveston area will welcome a new priest when Daniel Cardinal DiNardo ordains Sebastine Okoye at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, 1111 St. Joseph Parkway in downtown Houston.
On Tuesday, May 7, 2013, Two Former Episcopal Priests in Houston to Be Ordained Catholic Priests: Laurence Gipson was rector of St. Martin’s Episcopal in Houston for Nearly 14 Years; and Scott Blick, who served for 35 years in Episcopal ministry, including 16 years in Houston.
When more than 8,000 Catholic educators flock to Houston for the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) Convention and Expo (April 2 to 4) one of the highlights will be the presentation of awards for outstanding performance in and support for Catholic education. Nine of those awards will go to educators and organizations at Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
