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.

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.

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
