Venue Change Alert

Rain Can’t Dampen Our Gala Spirit!

Looks like the heavens have other plans for our Rose Window Gala, and rain is on the horizon.  But don’t worry – we are moving indoors to the Briscoe Museum, located at 210 W. Market Street, San Antonio, Tx. 78205.

Valet parking? You bet! You’ll be stepping out of your ride and right into the festivities.

The time line hasn’t changed: Cocktails at 6:00 p.m., and we are dining in style at 7:00 pm this Thursday October 26th.

For more information contact us at 210-357-5602.

Las Misiones is the non-profit charged with preserving the Mission churches.  Our most significant fundraiser is the biennial Rose Window Gala. Please join us Thursday, October 26, 2023, for an elegant evening on the grounds of Mission San Jose.

The money raised from Rose Window Gala funds the preservation and restoration of major projects at the four Mission churches. This year our focus is on Mission Concepción.  Its towers retain 80% of their original eighteenth century plaster including remnants of colorful frescos.  Covered in dirt and plant materials, this plaster is crumbling. Please consider becoming a part of Mission history with a sponsorship or underwriting opportunity.

Please contact Nicky Mata at [email protected] or 210-357-5602 with inquiries.
