In the heart of the city

IMG_9028

Saint Joseph’s Church sits serenely in the heart of San Antonio, Texas, surrounded by River Center Mall.  The building was built in 1868; the steeple was added in 1898. It is often referred to by long-time residents as “St. Joske’s” because the Joske’s department store surrounded it in 1945 after the Church refused to sell the building and property to the store.  Joske’s lives only in memories today, but the little Church is still serving God in the heart of the city!

May your day be peaceful!

    1. I’ve passed by the little church countless times and was aware of it’s history, but never really checked into it. Now I’m intrigued and going back for a close look!
