This is a historic San Antonio Anglican church located in the heart of downtown. The building, a modest but beautiful, neo-baroque building is the home of a strong community, with welcoming services and effective outreach programs.

We're attending a Convention in San Antonio, TX and wanted to see and attend St Mark's. The Church is beautiful; stained glass, organ pipes, wood working, etc., but I was most impressed with the warm, sincere welcome I received. As I was a bit early,...More

Across from the newly revitalized Travis Park, St. Mark's is a must-see landmark. With so much history, this gothic revival church is a true gem in the downtown San Antonio area.

The cornerstone was placed in 1859 for this church designed by Richard Upjohn, noted Gothic Revival architect form New York City. Several of the very fine windows were installed shortly after.

After the recent renovation, St.Mark's is visually stunning. Better yet is the music. The choir is outstanding and the organist is superb (i.e. postlude of Widor'sToccata, etc.). The organ is very powerful with a trumpet en chamade in the rear of the sanctuary. It makes...More

Take some time to visit St. Mark's whether to wander through or for a Sunday service. The sanctuary was recently renovated opening again in January 2013 for regular service. With your visit you will be entering the history of a church where Robert E. Lee...More
