About the Event
Father Kino was an Italian farm boy, who would grow up to become a Jesuit priest, and instead of being sent to his desired China, would be sent here to the New World, and would become famous as the “Padre on Horseback.”
This is the spellbinding tale of a dedicated and brave man, and when you have heard it you will know why he is, and deserves to be, so famous.
Snacks will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. B.Y.O.C. (bring your own chair) this lecture will take place outdoors in our large picnic area. Please email, or call, for reservations <firstname.lastname@example.org> 520-398-2252.
