Mormons make up 1.21% of the state of Texas’ population with 1.17% of the population of Corpus Christi being LDS. There are four stakes in San Antonio with a very active LDS community.
Starting in the 1920s, permanent congregations of the LDS Church were established in the area as members began building their own “Zion” in South Texas, rather than gather with the Saints in Utah. In 1958, the San Antonio Stake was created, which provided a framework for accelerated growth. In 2005, an LDS temple was dedicated on a prominent hill in the north-side of San Antonio, a lasting monument to the pioneering efforts of the Saints of San Antonio. The Texas San Antonio Mission was originally named Texas South Mission in 1967. It was renamed the Texas San Antonio Mission on June 20, 1974.
