If you go see any of the missions along Mission Road this one & San Jose are the best. The church is beautiful, still some original painting, plus any restoration have been kept as close to original as possible. Amazing story about the light through the small window at the top front of the church shining onto the painting of... More

This is one of several old missions from the 1800s that helped settlers and Indians form communities of worship and economic development. The missions offered a central place where people could congregate and work together to develop the territory.

We went at 9:30am for a 10am Mass. Good thing because the seats were filling up. Not many seats for an active community but the musicians were just so exciting & uplifting. The congregation is amazing, as well as the priest & deacon. You really feel a part of the community in one visit. Our hearts were filled with pure... More

Mission Concepción is the best preserved and least altered of the Texas missions. Colonel Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders trained near the mission before leaving for Cuba to participate in the Spanish American War, which ended in July 1898. It's amazing to see the original artwork on the walls of the mission.
