Just to the left of the front entrance, this niche is easy to miss! Continuing the mini tour of Mission San Xavier, here is the original baptismal font. It was brought from Spain. Notice the painting high on the wall. It is an angel recording the names of the babies who were baptized. I THINK she might be wearing blue cowgirl boots!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
