Archdiocese of San Antonio
We here at San Juan de los Lagos Parish and Shrine take great pride in knowing that we fall under the patronage of Our Mother, San Juan de los Lagos. A parish situated in the west side of San Antonio since its founding in 1952. The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, a congregation of priests and brothers, have been entrusted by the Archdiocese of San Antonio to maintain the spiritual and pastoral wellbeing of God's people.
Here at San Juan, you will find the people of our parish to be filled with Her Spirit as they continue to be enriched by The Word and fed by the Eucharist. It is through Her Spirit that we strive to exemplify God's love for all those who come to this Shrine to visit Our Mother or to just pray before The Blessed Sacrament.
If it's just coming by to purchase a candle for a promesa to Our Blessed Mother, or joining us in worship, I pray that your experience with us will be fulfilling. If you never visited us or if you are looking for a place of worship, come by and see us. We are a simple parish and shrine, but a parish and shrine full of God's joy. Perhaps you will make it your home as so many others have in the past.
May God Bless you and may Our Blessed Mother, San Juan de Los Lagos, grant your prayers through Her Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
