Welcome to the Padre Margil Pilgrimage Center. This center honors Ven. Padre Antonio Margil de Jesus who walked countless miles spreading the Gospel of Christ. Here, you and your family can learn more about Padre Margil, the Franciscans who helped establish these Missions and so much more though our interactive technology. Children young and old can take part in children’s activities or sit quietly with a book in our Book Nook. Be sure to also take some time to watch our video on pilgrimage to the missions. Open Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm and Saturday, 10am – 2pm.
