Mission Heritage Partners: Inspired by a single goal
Just as the 18th century residents of the Spanish Missions themselves were devoted individuals, the Mission Heritage Partners, formerly known as Los Compadres, is a community of committed volunteers inspired by one goal. Since 1983 we have provided financial and hands-on support for the preservation, restoration, development and protection of the four Spanish Missions that comprise the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. An integral part of Texas’ only UNESCO World Heritage Site, these historically significant places require constant attention and care.
The Mission Heritage Partners works in cooperation with the National Park Service, the Archdiocese of San Antonio, the City of San Antonio, Bexar County and the State of Texas. The General Land Office of Texas owns and manages Mission Valero/The Alamo. We are the only officially chartered “friends” group providing support to the four Missions within the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
Over the years, our projects have helped raise awareness of the rich history of our region and the impact the 18th century Spanish Missions had on our growth.
Our board of directors is a group of actively involved individuals, and our general members share the same level of interest in the preservation, restoration, development and protection of the San Antonio Missions. We hope to meet you at a Mission soon, and encourage you to weave these important historical places into your San Antonio experience.
