St. Francis on the Brazos Catholic Church

Diocese of Austin

Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos!

In 1924, Franciscan missionaries came to Texas from Mallorca, Spain and established a mission in Waco, which was to minister to the spiritual needs of the Hispanic population of this area. By 1931, St. Francis Church on the Brazos was built. In later years the walls were decorated with paintings representing the Stations of the Cross and the glorification of St. Francis. The church is a replica of the historically important San Jose Mission in San Antonio, Texas.

Saint Francis on the Brazos, enriched with beautiful paintings, is one of the most exquisite and attractive churches of Texas. It is the religious center of thousands of Hispanics in Central Texas, as well as the hub of their educational and social activities. As in its architecture it is a happy combination of the American advanced early 20th century methods of construction with the colorful characteristics of the Spanish Mission style, in its activities it strives also to combine the color, the faith, and the gracefulness of the Spanish element with the best values of the American life.
