A group of clergy and laity began planning the Journey to Damascus in the Diocese of Corpus Christi in 1998. The first Journey weekend was held there in 1999, as well as the next 22 Journey weekends. Catholics from the greater Houston area participated in some of these weekends. Convinced of the energizing spiritual power of the weekend, they formed a committee to bring the Journey experience to the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. The first Journey in Houston was held at Circle Lake Retreat Center in February, 2004. Since then, Journey weekends have been experienced by over 2,200 people and our community is continuing to grow. We have branched into the Central Texas area with weekends held in the Austin Diocese and San Antonio Diocese.
We look forward to spreading this amazing ministry throughout Texas and beyond.
