Mission church services - question for Octoboy


I happened to be on the Memphis forum tonight and saw your posting relating to church services that have been created with tourists in mind, like a mariachi mass. I hadn't thought about attending church while in San Antonio because I'll only be there a short time, but your posting intrigued me. I'll be in SA in June for a conference, with meetings primarily in the day - would there be any chance of attending a church service at one of the historic missions during my visit?

1. Re: Mission church services - question for Octoboy

We've got more Catholic Churches than you can shake a stick at her in SA. You should be able to work out a time that fits your schedule. In addition to the missions we have a cathedral and the Basilica of the Nation Shrine of the Little Flower.

The Archdiocese of San Antonio has a listing of churches and you can click to see their mass schedule archdiosa.org/parishes/counties/bexar.html

I would call to verify, just to make sure.

Here are some -

Mission Concepción - Sunday 10 am

Mission San Juan Capistrano - Sunday 9am, 10:45am

San Francisco de la Espada Mission - Sunday 10am

Mission San Jose - Sunday 7:30am, 9:00am,10:30am & noon - I believe the noon mass is the Mariachi Mass

San Fernando Cathedral (downtown and has a gift shop)- weekdays 6:15 am, 12:45pm, several on Sunday

Little Flower - every weekday noon and 5:30 pm, several on sunday
