The archdiocese’s official SA 300 Tricentennial event, a Mass and procession celebrating the feast day of St. Anthony of Padua, will be held Wednesday night, June 13, beginning at San Fernando Cathedral.

The evening will start at 7:30 p.m. with a Mass in the cathedral. Following the liturgy, around 8:45 to 9 p.m., Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS, will proceed with a monstrance containing the Blessed Sacrament to a barge at an embarkation area on the San Antonio River located on the other side of Main Plaza. Lining the way through the Plaza will be Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus, Alhambras, and Knights of Peter Claver, as well as others.
For the next half hour, three barges – filled with choirs and youth representatives, along with the archbishop and the Blessed Sacrament — will process down the San Antonio River, stopping at the statue of St. Anthony and Marriage Island, and then returning to the embarkation area at Main Plaza.

The archdiocese and Hope for the Future is seeking families to sign up to hold candles lining the route along the San Antonio River to help celebrate this historic occasion and be a light for Archbishop Gustavo. Each family that joins will be given a candle and asked to light it during the procession in honor of St. Anthony. Candles and water will be available at 8 p.m. from stations along the route. All individuals under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent. The accompanying map contains locations assigned to school and parish affiliation.

“With your help, this will be an amazingly beautiful expression of our faith,” said Amy Hone, executive director of Hope for the Future. Catholic Life Insurance has also provided support to the SA 300 Tricentennial Commission to assist with this event.
