San Antonio – Chapel of the Incarnate Word

San Antonio – Chapel of the Incarnate Word

Share/Bookmark

The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word opened the Chapel of the Incarnate Word in 1907, just 38 years after arriving in San Antonio from their native France. Designed in the Romanesque style by architect F.B. Gaenslen and under the planning supervision of Reverend J.G. Badnarek of Chicago, the chapel resembles a cathedral in its massing and scale. The imposing tower is guarded by trumpeting angels at each corner, and other statuary and symbols depict the four Evangelists. Large stained glass windows flank the outer walls, with a rosette window in the choir. The elaborate chapel interior features marble columns with gilded capitals, an embossed metal ceiling, oak choir stalls, and a 19th century pipe organ.
