A docent-led tour makes an incredible difference in the quality of your Mission experience. The tour allows you to get additional information and stories that are not available in a self-guided tour. The Mission comes alive when you walk the grounds with someone who knows the history and can answer your individual questions.
For just a $1 more per person ($4/child, $6/adult) you can enhance your Mission visit so that it becomes a Mission Experience. Please call the Gift Shop to arrange for a group docent tour or check our calendar for the public docent tour schedule for the month. Current schedule is as follows: Sunday, October 14th Tour @ 12:30pm. Sat. Oct. 27 @ Noon. Regular Docent Tours are on Sundays: Oct. 28, Nov. 11, Nov. 25, Dec. 16 and Dec. 30, 2018. Sunday Tours begin at the Mission Gift Shop at 10:30am.
As you may already know, the Mission is currently struggling to meet the state-mandated seismic retrofit/restoration of the Mission church and facilities. To date, we have successfully completed approximately three-fourths of the project (approx. $7 Million dollars worth). Seismic work on the final phase (V) was halted due to lack of additional funds. Please help us raise another $4 Million to complete this extremely important, worthwhile project. Become part of the tremendous story of this special, historic Mission by giving Today! Send to: P.O.
