The Cathedral Park Meditation Walk is an opportunity to connect with God through the magnificence of his creation. Cathedral Park comprises all of the grounds at the Bishop Jones Center, in San Antonio, where the headquarters for the Diocese of West Texas is located. Cathedral Park is sacred ground; in this place God’s spirit lingers and beckons visitors to partake of his presence made palpable through his creation.
The Meditation Walk is a self-guided audio tour of our grounds. The audio files (9 total) can be found on the diocesan website – http://www.dwtx.org/about-the-diocese/cathedral-park-meditation-walk/ – or by subscribing to the Cathedral Park Meditation Walk podcast. If you have an Apple iPhone, go to the App Store and download the Podcast app (free). Open the Podcast app, which is purple with what looks an exclamation mark in the middle of it, and search for “Diocese of West Texas.” You should find the Cathedral Park Walk podcast.

However, you will be out of range past stop 6. Listen to the audio files for stops 7 and 8 before going to the lower level, or print out the script and take it with you for your walk.
The Walk includes an introduction and eight stops, each of which gives some background information and offers opportunities to enjoy the sights and sounds of God’s great and bountiful creation in this place. It takes abut 45 minutes to complete.
