This is a wonderful Church to attend in Downtown San Antonio. If you’re staying at Omni La Mansion, literally just around the corner. A few steps from hotel & they have a 530pm mass on Saturday.

Stopped in on a Thursday afternoon and had the place all to myself. Very peaceful and well worth a slight detour from the Riverwalk.

If you've read my reviews before - I love stopping by churches when I'm in a new city. Saint Mary's was no exception - a great spot for prayer and reflection. Also convenient for the traveling Catholic with daily confession and Mass.

Lovely old church built about 20 years after battle of the Alamo. Parish family very welcoming. 6:00 mass on Sunday is held up in the front of the church. Peaceful and serene.

I don't know, but the bulletin is posted outside the church and the rectory is on the grounds about 100 feet from the church entrance. Sorry, I can't help.

I didn't see any steps in front but I believe ther is access in the back. This is a beautiful old church. I suggest you phone them.
