Galveston Tour of Sacred Places

Galveston Island has been beaten and battered by dozens of catastrophic storms that have repeatedly flattened the city. So the churches and temples featured on the Galveston 16th Annual Tour of Sacred Places are all the more wondrous for having survived for the last 100-plus years. One highlight of the tour is St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, built from 1859 to 1860, reportedly the oldest wooden church on the island. Expect to see a glorious mix of architecture, history and spirituality. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 2202 Avenue K, Galveston Island. For information, call 409-765-3409 or visit $10.
Sat., Feb. 25, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2012
