About the Event


From September 1 to October 4, Christians around the world celebrate the Season of Creation. Our Mass will be outdoors, and music will be provided by Mariachi Mexica, an exciting Mariachi group. Afterward, join us as we walk in spirit toward the better protection of the Earth. After Mass, The Pilgrimage will depart from Mission Espada at 9:00 AM. We will walk, reflect and enjoy God’s creation along the San Antonio River on the Mission Reach trail. Upon reaching Mission San Juan Capistrano, Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller, MSpS will provide a special blessing. You can return to Mission Espada on the river trail or take the southbound VIVA Missions Bus # 40. The cost is $1.30 in correct change or credit card.
