Behind-the-Scenes Tours for Friends of Patronato
March 14, 2020 | Mission San Xavier del Bac announces it is temporarily closed for mass and visitors.
Tucson’s Bishop, the Most Reverend Edward Weisenburger, and San Xavier’s Pastor, Father Bill Minkel, OFM decided large numbers of pilgrims and tourists in a small space is a high-risk situation during the COVID-19 outbreak. The action has been decided out of caution of the public, parishioners, and the San Xavier del Bac staff.
The decision is temporary, according to the Diocese of Tucson. More details to be provided when available.
For an annual donation of $50 or more per year ($75 for couples / $100 for families) to Patronato, Friends become eligible for a range of benefits including our once-a-month “Behind the Scenes” tours that take Friends into the choir loft and baptistry (areas not included in regular tours).
