Due to a Shelter-in-Place Order by Monterey County, Mission San Antonio is CLOSED until further notice. There will be NO MASSES AVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS. We encourage you to follow along with Mass via television or the internet. See Parish tab for further information. Please note that while the Mission is closed, so too, are the Mission grounds. 

We are open daily (Tuesday through Sunday) from 10am to 4pm. We are currently CLOSED on MONDAYS. It is always a good idea to call ahead and confirm before visiting. 

We really do want you to come visit us!  

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.  Tours begin at the Mission Gift Shop. Due to our concern for the public's health and safety, all public tours are currently cancelled.

Our next  2 scheduled fundraising events, 2020 Mission Days and our Annual Mission Fiesta are CANCELLED due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. The funds raised at these annual events represent a critical part of our daily operating budget. Please help us offset this major income loss by sending a donation today to help us recover from the cancellation of these events.

As you may already know, the Mission has struggled to meet the state-mandated seismic retrofit/restoration of the Mission church and facilities. To date, we have successfully completed approximately four fifths of the project (over $9 1/2  Million dollars worth). Seismic work on the final phase was completed in February, 2020. Please help us raise an additional $2.1 Million to complete the work on the quadrangle (the Padre's Garden), the museum upgrade (to preserve our precious artifacts) and to improve the historic site preservation and interpretation as well as the site accessibility for all our visitors. This continues to be an 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. A donation acknowledgement letter will be sent to you for your tax files.
