La Procesion de San Antonio
The Archdiocese of San Antonio and Hope for the Future invite you to help us to be the light for the Archdiocesan official SA300 celebration of La Procesion. Join us to celebrate the feast day San Antonio's patron saint as Archbishop Gustavo processes from San Fernando cathedral to the statue of Saint Anthony. Immediately following mass at the cathedral, Archbishop and the Blessed Sacrament will board barges for their journey to the statue of St Anthony with a stop at Marriage Island, the site of the first mass in San Antonio, 309 years ago. Barges filled with choirs and youth representatives will accompany them in this journey along the river.
We invite you and your entire family to join us along the River Walk to celebrate this historic occasion and to help us to be the light for the Archbishop. Each family that joins us will be given a candle and be asked to light it during the procession in honor of St Anthony. Candles and water will be available at 8pm from stations along the route. Wear your school or parish T-Shirt and bring your school banner to show your school and parish spirit!!
With your help, this will be an amazingly beautiful expression of our faith.
See attached map for locations based on your school or parish affiliation. All individuals under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent.
