Attraction details
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Angelic music fills your ears, as the organ plays or you listen to the great sounds of the Liederkranz choir. The interior is as beautiful and majestic as the Gothic Revival architectural exterior, with gorgeous stained glass windows, an umber glow of polished wood or majestic marble forms. A beautiful place to visit as a tourist or as a member of the catholic faith.

At one time this historic mission church almost was taken down, but a determined Mr. McGinnis fought to preserve this pice of San Antonio history.

We knew Fr. Mario from when he was a priest at one of our churches in Fla. so stopped to see him. What a beautiful church. The tour guide on the Riverwalk boat ride said Macy's wanted to buy the entire block. However, the archdiocese wouldn't sell out. Good for them. It would be a terrible loss to the City. So Macy's built right around them!! Unlike the Cathedral, there is parking on the side of the church.

Beautiful church wonderful priest, and the parishioners are the best. We have been attending Mass there for sometime now and never tire of the message that Father Mario delivers. If you are ever in San Antonio, the Cathedral is a must but so is Saint Joseph.

We ran across this beautiful church when we were tired from walking. We went in lit a candle, said a prayer and took in the beauty while we rested in this holy place! There are no words to describe the feeling I had while being in this church. This is a must see!
