The St. Joseph Catholic Church is a Roman Catholic parish church in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio, located at 623 East Commerce Street in downtown San Antonio, Texas, United States. The Gothic Revival house of worship was the fourth Catholic parish in the city.
The church is an example of what the Chinese describe as a nail house; when the church refused to sell to a property developer, a large shopping mall was constructed around it.

  • When I entered, the Eucharist was displayed and it was so beautiful. I stayed for Mass and the priest explained very well the readings. Highly recommend going here :)
  • Great place to worship-very convenient to persons living in the downtown area-the fathers are very easy going and courteous-the worshipers are friendly and knowledgeable of procedures.
