“Pretty Church, pretty typical for its date”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

The church is well maintained inside, and inviting. Bright and airy. Felt very free to go inside and look around.

“Elegant and Peaceful_DvB”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is a historical treasure with clean architecture and simple beauty. There are ornate fixtures but the focus is spirituality. The priest I heard was well-spoken; he shared a practical message relevant to the world with an emphasis on service and charity.

Having visited impressive cathedrals and austere monasteries, I can't say this is a breathtaking building. It is a worthwhile detour on a trip if you are already in the area.

“my church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I've been a member of St. Augustine for over ten years. I like coming to the oldest church in Laredo. Many of my family members have been baptized, confirmed, or had their first communion here.

“Good Wedding Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

A beautiful church for a wedding or just to visit. Beautiful, beautiful stained glass windows and statuary. Large, but not massive.
