Advent at the Missions


Tired of the commercial and social pressure of the Season? Ready to renew your sense of expectation, hope and waiting that is at the heart of Advent? 


El Camino de San Antonio Missions invites you and your family to take a break and take a sacred journey to the San Antonio Mission churches as an Advent Pilgrimage. The Mission churches are places of history and grace that rejuvenate the spirit and the river walk trail that connects the missions provides a beautiful setting for reflections. 


Below is a link to download an Advent Pilgrimage guide with reflections for each Mission church as well as prayers and devotions. You can make a personal retreat yourself, with a companion, or with a group. Whether you visit all the Mission churches or just one, your Advent will be richer because of your journey.
