When immigrants arrived in Houston, one of the most diverse cities in the United States, their faith often offered solace in an unfamiliar land.
New arrivals to the city on the bayou erected places of worship, not only to preserve belief, but to provide a sense of community and identity, and to share resources. On this tour, journey to explore sacred spaces that maintain the ancient practices of Greek Orthodox Christians, the mysticism of Hare Krishna Hindus, and universal ideals of Daoists and Buddhists. All are a testimony to the incredible richness of belief in our city.
