A beautiful place. My family and friends were looking for a church to join, and we decided to check this one as a possible place of worship for us, so we went to the Dec. 16 Concert Gala. The temple was beautiful and the people seemed welcoming. However, during the first concert with the Boys Choir, my mother was quietly explaining the event to our friends, who are new to the United States. A woman who was seated with her family in front of us began to grumble very obviously but we paid it no mind as we assumed she was complaining of something that had nothing to do with us. How wrong we were! After twenty minutes of hearing her murmur and seeing her stare at us, she scolded us incredibly rudely! We were so incensed we reacted. We thought everything was over, until i saw her snap a photograph of us! She then said she would tell the artistic Director of the Boy's Choir, Carole Nelson, that we had been speaking during her presentation. I was appalled and told her that she should not be taking a strangers' picture without their permission. But it doesn't end there. She began to film a video of us! At this point i am ashamed to say i was incensed! I had never been so blatantly violated in a place of worship, and so i presented a rather rude finger for her future perusal of her illicitly taken video of me and my family and friends. I have never before encountered such judgment, she did not even give us a chance to explain ourselves before everything happened, she just turned to us and rudely scolded us and then took our picture and taped us to tattle like a boorish and bitter child. It doesn't end there! She began shadowing our group all throughout the jazz hall concert afterward! My friends will not be telling their family to join this church, and i will not recommend it to anyone either. There is no use for a beautiful temple if the people who are members of the congregation there treat newcomers in this way.

From Business: Tours are conducted every Wednesday, the first Friday and Sunday of each month. The church is a modern architectural marvel, evoking the grand gothic style of the Middle Ages. Highlights include a seven story high ceiling in the nave and the Gloria Dei organ. Extraordinary stained glass windows, authentic medieval art and …

I have two children that graduated from STE and one child currently enrolled. I cannot say enough good things about this school! Being a classical education, the students are exposed to so much more than at a traditional school. The class sizes are small which keeps the students engaged. There are a lot of AP classes offered which helps with college admissions. The students also have a lot of options for interesting electives including Scottish bagpipes or drumming and Scottish dance. College counseling starts in the 9th grade which really gets students more than prepared to start their applications. The schools is smaller which makes for a very nice community feel. Parents are also encouraged to be active in the school activities. STE is a wonderful school run by a wonderful faculty. I encourage anyone in the Houston area looking at private schools to definitely take the time to look at St. Thomas. You won't regret it!!
As a young diverse family we felt strongly of having a community oriented church where we could instill core value in our children. Ascension Episcopal Church was the answer to our call after few years of searching, this church family has everything we're looking for: leadership, people, music, program, and most of all, is its genuine enthusiasm for God.
We go to this Church. We love the music at the Church and I'm not saying that only because my son plays in one of the Church bands. Over all a very pleasant place to worship.
