I've walked by that one a few times and it looks really cool.
It looks like an old small church that the city grew around it, but it stayed the same.

If you can take them to 11:00 Mass on a fourth Sunday, the San Antonio Liederkranz sings a High Latin Mass, often with German church music. The Liederkranz has been the church choir in St. Joseph's since the 1890s, and the music can be pretty breathtaking.

"St. Joske's". Agreed - beautiful! I went to a wedding there, in German.

All 4 have active congregations (and Sunday masses). See the archdiocese website for mass listings if you're interested.

All also do weddings.
