Ranked by many as one of the top cultural experiences, Mariachi Mass at Mission San Jose is a weekly mass held at the largest of the five San Antonio missions. The mass is delivered in English and accompanied by famed Spanish mariachi music. Visitors who attend the weekly mass appreciate the welcoming hospitality shown to newcomers.

Mission San Jose, founded in 1720, is regarded for its beautiful architecture and sense of history. The grounds are extensive, and a visitors' center helps guests find the most intriguing areas.

The mass begins at noon. Visitors of all denominations attend the mass. If you plan to go, arrive early as the mass is so popular it is often standing room only. Visitors are also advised to wear appropriate worship dress.
