Who We Are
At St. Benedict Anglican Church, we uphold the “faith once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). As such, we believe in:
The Holy Bible as Word of God, sufficient for salvation and all essential matters of faith and morals.
The Nicene Creed, Apostles’ Creed, and Athanasian Creed as the historical summaries of the biblical “Rule of Faith.”
The Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as instituted by Christ, and generally necessary for all Christians.
The historic episcopacy, locally adapted.
As classical Anglicans we uphold and subscribe to our traditional Formularies because we believe they are in conformity to Scripture:
The Book of Common Prayer locally adapted in conformity to the standards set by the 1662 edition.
The 39 Articles of Religion, locally adapted in conformity to the standards set in 1563.
The Ordinal, locally adapted in conformity to the standards set in 1549.
REV'D Canon Barry Kowald
Father Barry is the Rector of St. Benedict Anglican Church San Antonio, Texas, and the Minister General of the Society of St. Benedict. He was ordained in April 2015 as a deacon and ordered as a priest in September 2017.

We are a diverse group of Christians worshipping together in the Anglican tradition. Our churches range from old to new, high to low, predominantly African to predominantly Anglo. What holds us together is our commitment to the Gospel, the authority of Scripture, and the Body of Christ gathered where the Word of God is faithfully preached and the Sacraments duly administered.
We welcome you to join us as we work to make disciples of Jesus Christ in all nations.
We Believe in the Power of Prayer
Let Us Pray for You
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Mt 28:18–20.
