Sunday Service in Houston
The Houston Temple broadcasts its Sunday Services live on Ustream. If you would like to watch the service, it usually begins at 10:00 AM CST [any changes for special services will be noted on the calendar]. We also conduct Wednesday evening Shodaigyo service which begins at 8:00 PM CST. These services are also broadcast via Ustream, so you will need a high speed connection to the web.
