Mission San Xavier del BacTucson Update: Linda Ronstadt.. the New York Times (Dec 29, 2013) has a nice article about Linda Ronstadt growing up in Southern Arizona. From Tucson through Northern Mexico, she relates the area to her childhood. If you read the article in the paper and you look at the picture inside the church you will notice a dog lying down. The patron saint of the Church is ST. Francis (the animal saint). Animals are allowed to wander in/out at will even during Mass (services).  Nobody bothers them and they go where they want. I have seen dogs in the church every time I have visited.  The mission (church) is an active Native American parish (church). Many of the ceremonies throughout the year have been practiced for a very long time. They do not advertise these ceremonies, but they are open to anyone. As always,
