Docent News:

Are you drawn to the Holy Spirit here at the Old Mission, or enjoy learning about the diverse history marked here? Do you enjoy school-aged education, meeting people from all over the world, and interacting with travelers of all kinds?

We are looking for more volunteers to become part of our docent team and share in the cultivation of this parish and museum experience. We are a community of people who love this mission just like you and will support the talent and knowledge you may bring. We hope you will join us in sharing what we love. If interested, please contact for more information. We look forward to new members!
