Mission Church and Museum open daily 10:00 am - 5:00 pm (Closed: New Years, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas)


Join us for the celebration of Mary & Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem. Since 1982 Old Mission San Jose and Fremont Cultural Arts provides an opportunity for families to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Each evening at 6:00 p.m. we will meet on the front porch of the Mission San Jose Museum, 43300 Mission Blvd., Fremont, to process while singing Christmas carols to a local business or site within two blocks of the Mission. A family is selected to carry the beautifully handcarved statue of Mary and Joseph. Once inside the host business or site, Fremont Cultural Arts Council has arranged for a short musical program and then we will enjoy light refreshments courtesy of our host. Wear warm clothing and bring a flashlight to read the music sheets as we process. We hope you wil join us rain or shine for this no-cost celebration during the Christmas season.

Co-sponsored by Old Mission San Jose Museum and Fremont Cultural Arts Council. For more info, contact 510-657-1797, ext 106
