Faith on Film: San Xavier del Bac, Tucson, Arizona
The Missions were not just a feature of California. The Spanish established Missions throughout Texas, New Mexico and Arizona as well. Few, however, prospered and remain active churches like the ones in California. San Xavier del Bac is one of those exceptions. The Fascade was under renovation, so I'm not showing it. But you can go to their official website for a view.
When we visited the Church was decorated for Advent, and I am featuring scene from San Xavier for the Advent Season.
