“Germans had this built and it is historical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

The church is beautiful and the history and mass were wonderful, a great priest and mass. I loved the history and decoration and design of the interior and exterior, an amazing and beautiful piece of architecture and history. A great homily by the priest too! Would go back every Sunday if I lived here.

“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

This is a parish church that makes you feel like you are at home. Attending mass on Saturday evening here was a very positive faith experience.

“Beautiful church, great for weddings, especially mine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

I first visited this small church in 2001. Little did I know that I'd be getting married here six years later. This is a beautiful church built for the local German parish, which makes for a sharp contrast from the Spanish missions and architecture. The Dillard's and Rivercenter mall wrap around the Church which lends to the charm of the church. So, like the Alamo, modern San Antonio rose up around St. Joseph's.

Because this is such a charming little church, it can be busy on Saturdays for weddings. The parish wedding cooridinator was strict on the time we had at the church, though the pricing was reasonable.
