Cathedral Park Meditation Walk

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.

Cathedral House Gallery

Cathedral House Gallery was founded in the fall of 2011 as a venue for spiritual formation through the visual arts. Several exhibits are mounted each year in response to topics that invite us to see God’s hand at work in the world.

The gallery showcases the excellent work of Christian artists and photographers in our diocese and region. Proceeds from sales through the gallery benefit diocesan ministries.

Cathedral House Gallery is located at the Bishop Jones Center on the grounds of Cathedral Park, the headquarters for the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, at 111 Torcido, San Antonio TX 78209. Cathedral Park offers a place of rest and refreshment with its tranquil setting, meditation spots, and resting benches.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., except holidays. The grounds are always open to visitors.

Please ignore the two posts that were sent from this site earlier this evening. I am updating this site.

In the hopes that you will not receive more posts while I am working on it, I have closed the site for a few days.  I will sent a note when it is back up.

None of this will impair your ability to access the coming Mark Bible study once the site is back up.

I apologize for the inconvenience. – Marjorie George
