About the Shrine of the True Cross in Dickinson, Texas:
St. Joseph’s Church here in Dickinson is a parish, a school, and an official Shrine of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. A Relic of the Wood of the True Cross upon which Christ died was received from Rome and enshrined in the church. In 1937 Bishop Byrne designated the Shrine as the diocesan chapel of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre. It is one of only three shrines that are dedicated to the Holy Cross currently listed in The Official Catholic Directory of the United States. With the word “shrine” in the title comes a special ministry and a special gift: to draw pilgrims and religious visitors closer to the Cross of Christ.
