Mission San Xavier del Bac was established by the Jesuit Missionary Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. The present church was built by the Franciscans, between 1783 and 1797. Mission San Xavier del Bac is still a functioning parish church serving the residents of the San Xavier Tohono O'odham Reservation. The mission is open every day of the year from 8 AM to 5 PM. Please be respectful and quiet during masses. Admission is free; but donations are appreciated. Provisions are made for handicapped access. There is a gift shop on site that is open every day of the year except Easter Sunday and Christmas Day, from 8 AM to 5 PM.
