San Fernando Cathedral has always been at the center of San Antonio. The church was founded on March 9, 1731. The church was constructed in 1873 to replace the original, which had been formed more than 100 years earlier. The cathedral building has been added to the distinction of being Texa's oldest standing church building, which is more than 281 years. It is a unique place that holds a special role in this city and for the many thousands of tourists who come each year. The hundreds of people enter the church daily to pray, visit, light a candle, or follow various devotional traditions. San Fernando has become more than the geographic center; it has become an ecumenical, cultural, civic, and service center of unity and harmony for all the God-loving people of San Antonio and beyond. San Fernando Cathedral has more than 5,000 participants at weekend masses. And every year, the church faces 900 baptisms, 100 weddings, 100 funerals, and many other services.
