Mission San Antonio de Padua, Jolon

4.7
Welcome to the Campaign for the Preservation of Mission San Antonio de Padua. Please help us in saving the beautiful Mission San Antonio by making a donation to upgrade its buildings to meet modern earthquake standards, thereby increasing safety and guaranteeing the mission will remain a sacred space for future generations. Without adequate funding for proper retrofitting, the historic mission faces certain closure, a tragic loss for California.

Mission San Antonio implores the community – history buffs, naturalists, artists, soul searchers, architects and every former fourth grader who found knowledge and peace at Mission San Antonio – to participate in this worthwhile cause.

Together, we will Save a Timeless Treasure!

  • Retreat center is basic but nice. Big kitchen with everything you need for your retreat meals. Coffee provided. Our meals were catered and all in the walk in fridge with instructions for heating. Rooms have sinks, restroom and shower room down the hall. Church and gardens are beautiful. Restorations are under way and probably constant considering the age of the buildings.
  • A must visit when traveling Highway 101 in either direction. Easy too find. Well marked. Ultra friendly staff interested in your personal experience. I can't say enough about today's good vibe. Everyone smiling. Everyone agreeable. Just simply, a straight forward experience, learning about history and the role of missions along our Central Coast. Overall, highly recommended. PS. Bring your lunch and enjoy California's rugged backcountry. Cheers.
