San Fernando Cathedral was founded on March 9, 1731, and has always been a focal point of San Antonio. In 1873, the current cathedral was built to replace the original structure, which had stood for over a century. As the oldest standing church building in Texas, at more than 281 years old, San Fernando Cathedral is a unique and special place for the thousands of tourists who visit each year. Daily, hundreds of people come to pray, light candles, visit, or observe various devotional traditions. The cathedral has become more than a geographic center; it has become a unifying ecumenical, cultural, civic, and service center for San Antonio's God-loving people and beyond. San Fernando Cathedral has over 5,000 participants at weekend masses and annually conducts 900 baptisms, 100 weddings, 100 funerals, and numerous other services.
