San Xavier Mission Tour

You are asked to make a donation to the Mission for the Tour.

San Xavier Mission, also known as the White Dove of the Desert, was established in 1692 by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, founder of the chain of Spanish missions in the Sonoran Desert. A Jesuit of Italian descent, he often visited and preached in the area, then the PimerĂ­a Alta colonial territory of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. Construction of the first mission church, about two miles (3 km) from the site of today's Mission, began on April 28, 1700.

We will receive a guided tour by the Mission's volunteer staff.

Meet at the Camera Club at 12:15PM, and depart at 12:30PM. Peg Johnson will be the trip leader. For questions, contact Peg at peg.johnson06@gmail.com
