UST Parish Partners
 
UST Parish PartnersUST Parish Partners is a partnership initiative between the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and the University of St. Thomas.  As the only Catholic university in the Archdiocese, UST invites all individuals and parishes to experience our vibrant campus life.  UST also partners with the parishes to provide resources that will enhance Catholic life in their communities.

The University of St. Thomas’ relationship with the Archdiocese dates back to 1944, seen in this signed agreement between Christopher E. Byrne, Bishop of the Diocese of Galveston and Rev. Edmund J. McCorkell, Basilian Superior General.
