Trinity Episcopal Church, Houston

Trinity Episcopal Church, Houston

The Trinity Episcopal Church was founded in the year 1893, which makes it one of the older churches in the midtown section of Houston. It was founded as a mission church from Christ Church, in order to minister to the new community that was forming in the Midtown area at the turn of the 20th Century. It is the second oldest Episcopal Church in town.

The church building itself is a beautiful example of neo-Gothic architecture. In fact, it is one of the best examples of church building in town. When you go inside, you will also be in for a treat. The local congregation has a remarkably well restored 1918 Pilcher Pipe Organ that plays wonderful music. The building also has some of the best stained glass in town. The structure was designed by the famous architectural firm of Cram and Ferguson.

In the history of this congregation, it has produced 7 clergies who have gone on to become Episcopal Bishops. In addition, famous people like Walter Cronkite and Dr. Denton Cooley were members of this famous Houston church. It is worth a visit.
