We are attempting to remain open Daily from 10am to 4pm. Due to current staffing shortages, however, we may occasionally need to close when we can't staff the gift shop/museum. It is always a good idea to call ahead and confirm before visiting. We really do want you to come visit us! We are currently CLOSED on MONDAYS.
4th Grade Families - consider a night at the Mission in our retreat center - a great experience for the whole family!
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: Sundays, Jan. 13 and Jan. 27, 2019. Tours begin at the Mission Gift Shop at 10:30am.
Next fundraising event will be Annual Cutting of the Roses and Brunch . . . Sunday, January 27, 2019. Begins with Mass at 9am, brunch served 10:30am to noon. Come meet with our Gift Shop Consignment Artists, enjoy a great meal and take home some rose cuttings for your own garden! This year we are excited to be including members of the Monterey Bay Rose Society at our event. They will be demonstrating correct pruning procedures and other rose care.
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. $8+Million dollars worth). Seismic work on the final phase (V) was halted in 2018 due to lack of funds. We resumed work in December, 2018. Please help us raise another $3 Million to complete this extremely important, worthwhile project. Become part of the tremendous story of this special, historic Mission by giving Today! Send to: Mission San Antonio de Padua, P.O. Box 803, Jolon, CA 93928. Attn: Retrofit
