The Fountains Visits San Xavier Mission

On this beautiful spring day without a cloud on the sky, we set out on an adventure heading south to “The White Dove of the Desert”. The historic San Xavier Mission is a national historic landmark and was founded by Father Kino, the Jesuit pioneer in 1692. Stan, our docent, was so knowledgeable and shared the history of the mission as well as the restoration efforts over the years. The Mission remains a working church with a daily mass and is surely a very sacred place.
