A Taste of Latin America in Texas

Sabbaticants find delight in the park-like campus of the Oblate School of Theology with its beautifully landscaped lawns and ample walkways which meander through 41 acres of campus. Everything exudes a sense of seclusion, natural beauty and peace. Prominent aspects of the campus are the 100 year old school dministration and classroom buildings, the Immaculate Conception Memorial Chapel, the Lourdes Grotto and Shrine of our Lady of Guadalupe, the Oblate Renewal Center and the new O'Shaughnessy Library which contains a theological collection of more than 100,000 volumes. A large outdoor swimming pool, available during the warm months completes this beautiful park-like setting.

San Antonio, “the Alamo City” is rich in history, faith and cultural heritage. Although it is the eighth
largest city in the United States, San Antonio offers all the friendliness and warmth of a small town in
a predominantly Hispanic ambience. For history buffs, San Antonio is a mecca, especially its chain of
Spanish missions established along the San Antonio River. It is ideally located one hour from the
beautiful Texas hill country, three hours from the beaches of the Texas coast and three hours from
the closest crossing into Mexico.
