Museum:
  We have a museum at the Mission that explains more about our history with artifacts. The best way to start your
  experience is to begin with a 20 minute video which talks about the history of the Mission and its restoration. Then
  walk through the museum and look at the artifacts that give you a sense of the history and the way people lived here
  at the Mission. Our museum is free and open to the public, however there are some donation boxes which helps
  provide for its upkeep. The museums hours are: 8:30am - 4:30pm daily.

  Gift shop:
  We have a gift shop that has all kinds of ideas to commemorate your visit to Mission San Xavier. There is a wide
  array of items from t-shirts to authentic Tohono O'odham basket made right here on the reservation. On your next
  visit to the Mission please be sure to check it out. The gift shops hours are: 8:00am - 5:00pm daily (holiday hours 
  may vary).

  Candles:
  Lighting a candle represents someone's intention/prayer to God when lit and left in the church. Candles can be  
  purchased at both the gift shop and the museum foyer. We ask that only these candles be lit in the church as they
  are smokeless candles and will not harm the paintings, frescos, and statuary; the cost of a candle is $3.00 currently.

  Donations:
  Misison San Xavier is able to do its various ministries, be a place for visitors, pilgramages, maintain the structure, pay
  salaries, subsidize the school, and many more, through the donations we receive through our vistors and
  parishioners. If you feel a special connection to Mission San Xavier and would like to make a donation there are 
  several ways to do so. If you would like to make a donation towards the restoration of the mission you can do so by
  going to the website: Patronato San Xavier. They are a non-profit with the sole purpose of raising money for the r
  restoration of the Mission. Your donation can be done by using a credit card or there is information on where to send
  a check or money order.

  If you would like to give to the Mission Church or for San Xavier Mission School please send your check or money
  order to:

  Statement on Mission usage:
  The Mission was created to serve the needs of the local community here, the village of Wa:k (San Xavier District) on  
  the Tohono O'odham reservation, as it still does today. We have people from all over the country, and the world,
  wanting to have their special event here at the mission, and sometimes that can be accommodated, but the policy of
  the Mission church is to only do Marriages, Baptisms, etc. for the local community. Everyone is welcome to
  attend masses, special celebrations (like feast days), etc., but it is our belief that ones sacramental life should be
  shared within their local community.
