Cutting of the Roses

The annual Cutting of the Roses is an important fundraiser for the Mission.

Begins with Mass at 9am and followed by the Annual Cutting of the Roses (in the Padre's Garden) allowing visitors the opportunity to receive rose cuttings from the Mission roses for their own personal gardens for a nominal donation. Crafts and a delightful assortment of Gifts from the Garden are also available for sale. These gifts range from hollyhock seeds, rose cuttings, lavender sachets and more. Meet with many of our talented artists that consign their artwork and crafts to our fabulous Gift Shop.


The Brunch (Sunday, January 26, 2020), serves from 10am to noon.. Meal includes eggs, cheese enchiladas, rice and beans, juice and coffee for $10. Please consider calling ahead and purchasing a meal ticket for a military service member. It's a wonderful way to say, "Thank you" for their continued sacrifice and service to our Country. Come enjoy a festive brunch. Maybe add a champagne mimosa or a luscious dessert (additional charge) for a sweet ending to a lovely Mission experience. This year we will be joined by members of the Monterey Bay Rose Society who will demonstrate correct pruning procedures and share additional rose care pointers.
