San Xavier del Bac - White Dove of the Desert

The Mission San Xavier del Bac was founded in 1692. The present church was built under the direction of the Franciscians. It was begun in 1783 and completed in 1787. The interior has been restored under the direction of the guy who restored the Sistine Chapel. (That's some accurate reporting on my part, huh!)
