A major project remains, which is the restoration of San Xavier Mission’s East Tower. Restoring this tower will help preserve the structural integrity of the building and further enhance its beauty. In the centuries since the Mission was built, cracking in the East Tower’s exterior has allowed water to migrate behind the stucco and wick into the interior adobe brick.
