The Archdiocese of Galveston has a deep heritage as one of the oldest dioceses in the U.S. with a rich diversity that reflects today's Catholic Church.
While the history of the Catholic faith in Texas began when the Spanish explorers and missionaries arrived in the 16th century, the Archdiocese has continued to pray and celebrate the Gospel message in a multitude of ways since its founding in 1847. Today the Archdiocese continues to participate in activities of social justice, support the good works of persons in other countries, prepare our children and young people to be responsible members of the community — and we do all this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Our parishes, ministries, schools and communities are vibrant in faith, service and the Gospel message.
The Media Relations team of the Archdiocese offers extensive resources to credentialed members of the print and broadcast news media on the events, people and parishes that make up the Archdiocese, one of the largest and most ethnically diverse in the United States. We offer many story ideas, subject matter experts and locations.
- If you are wanting to film on any Archdiocesan property, including parish churches, schools, pastoral facilities and other locations, you will need to obtain permissions.
We encourage news media seeking information, statements, interview requests or possible story ideas to contact a member of our media relations team. Contact us directly if you have questions or would like assistance.
