Inspired by tradition, Christ Church Cathedral is a diverse and passionate Christian community devoted to meaningful worship and ministry. It is a parish that has embraced its historic, downtown Houston setting and is proud of its 180-year history. After more than a year of research, conversation, feedback and prayer, Christ Church announced Sowing The Seed – The Campaign for Christ Church Cathedral, and we are thrilled to be the contractor that will bring their vision to life. The Cathedral’s buildings date back as far as 1893 and require work on masonry, windows, roofs, drains, and scuppers. These buildings are listed on national, state, and local historic registers and work must comply with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. The interior of the 1893 sanctuary requires modest work, consisting of painting walls, refinishing the floor, upgrading the lights in the chancel and installing a new electronic system to improve acoustics in the back of the sanctuary. The most complex interior work is remodeling the sacristy where vesting occurs, altar accoutrements are stored, and collections are returned after each service. Christ Church is improving and restoring their historical campus to continue their mission of providing inspiring worship and expanding their transformative ministry to Houston and beyond while preparing for their future.
