We have tickets available for the 8pm concerts, but the 6pm concerts are sold out. The Sons of Orpheus and the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus perform. The concerts are a fundraiser for Patronato, which is a nonprofit devoted to restoring and preserving Mission San Xavier for future generations.

Patronato News


Mission San Xavier has inspired countless people across centuries since its foundations were laid in 1783.

This National Historic Landmark is a premier example of Mexican Baroque architecture and along with the majestic saguaro, is one of the most recognized icons in Arizona.

Today, this active Mission remains a working parish and the spiritual home for many Southern Arizonans. Host to tens of thousands of visitors annually from around the world, in October 2015, the Mission was named to the global World Monuments Fund “Watch” list that includes 50 cultural heritage sites in 36 countries that are at risk from the forces of nature and the impact of social, political and economic change.

Nonprofit Patronato San Xavier was founded by Southern Arizona community leaders in 1978 as a vehicle for preserving and restoring the Mission. With 80 percent of the main building completed, Patronato continues to raise critical funds for the restoration, maintenance and preservation of Mission San Xavier.
