About this Item

SAN ANTONIO, CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE OF. The vast area of Texas was originally under the spiritual jurisdiction of dioceses in Mexico, though Franciscans were the predominant clergy. Catholic evangelization of the San Antonio area started with missions San Antonio de Valero (1718), San José y San Miguel de Aguayo (1720), Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción de Acuña (1731), San Juan Capistrano (1731), and San Francisco de la Espada (1731), and San Fernando parishqv (1731). In 1839 Rome established the Prefecture Apostolic of Texas, a missionary domain comprising the new Republic of Texas under the leadership of a prefect apostolic. Between 1838 and 1848 the number of Irish and German Catholic immigrants increased. The annexation of Texas to the United States in 1845 and the growth in the number of Catholics led to the foundation of the Diocese of Galveston (1847), which covered all of Texas, with Jean Marie Odin as bishop. The entire area between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande was soon added to Odin's diocese as a result of the Mexican War in 1846 47. With continuing immigration into Texas, including Czechs and Poles,qqv it became necessary to divide Texas into more dioceses. Profusely illustrated this is the 1st edition of its history of two fathers, who were Oblates of Mary Immaculate.
