Watch as we transform Henke Hall, the RE Building classrooms, covered walkways, and outdoor courtyard with a variety of wonderful vendors so you can begin your holiday shopping in an unhurried manner!
Vendor applications are being accepted — please contact Nita Hotard at 210-275-7126 if you are interested.

Have you been searching for a way to answer Jesus’ call to, “Come, follow me,” and explore ways to deepen your spirituality? Do you want to become a part of a community built on wisdom, productivity, and vitality on a journey to better know, love, and serve Jesus? Our RCIA program (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) provides a welcoming group setting where the journey of faith and moments of conversion can be celebrated. If you are interested in becoming Catholic or need to complete your sacraments of initiation with Holy Communion or Confirmation, we invite you to join us at our RCIA sessions in the JP II Room on the second floor of the San Damiano Building on Sundays after the 8:30 am Mass. These first meetings are all about inquiry, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions. For more information, please contact Sr. Rose in the parish office.
