San Fernando Cathedral
by Karina Purohit
Visiting San Antonio would not be complete until you visited the beautiful San Fernando Cathedral. This beautiful church stands in the center of San Antonio. This unique church is visited by thousands of visitors every year.
From its founding on March 9, 1731 by a group of 15 families who came from Canary Islands at the invitation of King Phillip V of Spain, this church was planned to be at the center of the life of this city.
San Fernando Cathedral functions not exclusively as a Catholic Cathedral, but as a center of unity and harmony for all the God-loving people of San Antonio and beyond.
Over 5,000 participate at weekend Masses each week of the year. Over 900 baptisms, 100 weddings, 100 funerals, and countless other services are performed each year. Symphonies, concerts, and television specials are but a few of the special events held in the cathedral regularly. Hundreds of people enter the church daily to pray, visit, light a candle, or follow various devotional traditions. Each person is a part of the story of this magnificent place and a tribute to its enduring presence as the spiritual center of San Antonio.
