It’s my recollection that as Houston exploded and Galveston stagnated, the functional center moved to Houston, and eventually the Houston church was named cathedral. Rather than stripping Galveston of the honor of being a cathedral, the two were named co-cathedrals.

Per one of the links, Houston received a Cathedral in 1959.

Thanks for the explanation of the name Co Cathedral I always wonder when I hear it mentioned. I saw it on the news yesterday, very impressive.
