Michael Jackson, Executive Director.
Begun in 1954 as a small outreach ministry of St. Augustine of Hippo Episcopal Church in Galveston to the youth and residents ‘north of Broadway’, St. Vincent’s House has become an urban mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and a recognized Jubilee Ministry.
As a Jubilee Ministry, St. Vincent’s House serves as an effective vehicle to convey God’s love to the vulnerable and at-risk populations of Galveston in a real and tangible way. We pray continually for the mission, our clients, fellow servants and supporters. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
“As a mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, our task is to encourage the community [those served and those who serve] to be proactive in their lives; helping to bring the needed changes for a renewed and revitalized community.”
