San Antonio Airport Ministry
Over twenty-one million tourists visit San Antonio, TX annually. International travel has increased more than 140% at San Antonio International Airport over the last year.
Conveniently located near baggage claim, our Catholic Information Booth offers free materials on the Catholic faith, with friendly volunteers to assist.
Pope Benedict XVI, addressing airport ministry workers throughout the world: "Always be conscious that you are called to embody in the world’s airports the Church's mission of bringing God to man and leading man to the encounter with God...Be assured that even in chance encounters, people are able to recognize a man of God, and that often a small seed falling on good soil can bring forth abundant fruit." (June 2012)
Join This Unique Ministry
We need volunteers! Join us in this simple, fruitful outreach. All you need is a smile and two hours a week to give to this Ministry reaching out to persons traveling through San Antonio International Airport.
The Catholic Information Booth is active every Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 12pm in Terminal B. Volunteers are asked to remain at the booth and welcome any visitors who come seeking information about our faith. No need to bring any items; The Pilgrim Center of Hope approves and provides all the material.
Once you sign up, detailed information will be provided; including carpooling information and where to meet. Interested?
