Location of the Diocese of Texas

The Episcopal Diocese of Texas is one of the largest dioceses of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. The diocese consists of all ECUSA congregations in the southeastern quartile of Texas, including the cities of Austin, Beaumont, Galveston, Houston (the see city) and Waco.

Among the institutions of the diocese are St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital in Houston and the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest in Austin.

The diocese traces its foundation to Christ Church in Matagorda in 1838. Together with Christ Church, Houston (1839) and Trinity Church, Galveston (1841) it formed the Episcopal Church of Texas, the Episcopal presence in the Republic of Texas. It formally became a diocese of ECUSA in 1849.

The current bishop is the Right Reverend C. Andrew Doyle. He succeeded the Rt. Rev. Don Wimberly as diocesan bishop upon Wimberly's retirement on June 7, 2009. The Right Reverend Rayford B. High Jr. and the Right Reverend Dena Harrison serve as bishops suffragan. Harrison is the thirteenth woman consecrated to the episcopate in the Episcopal Church and the first in a diocese in the South.

Christ Church became the cathedral of the diocese in 1949.
