Soledad Mission decorates grounds, museum for Christmas

Doors open daily through the holidays for guests to visit and shop

SOLEDAD — A transformation has taken place at Soledad Mission as the Christmas at the Soledad Mission event began last Friday night on the mission grounds at 36641 Fort Romie Road.

With a little tinsel and hard work, the mission museum has become a holiday boutique where unique gifts can be purchased and warm drinks and delicious desserts can be sampled.

The Christmas at the Soledad Mission event has taken place for over a dozen or more years and all proceeds from the sales are used to help maintain the mission.

Guests can shop and visit the boutique daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through the holidays.

“We have decorated the Mission’s museum rooms to represent the Christmas holiday,” said Kerry Kesecker. “People will find decorations and gifts for Christmas along with visiting the Mission at a special time of the year. We also can gift wrap any purchases for you. My sisters and I have worked on this event since it started, as helping to maintain Soledad Mission is very important to us as we grew up here.”

Greenfield resident Angelica Vasquez brought her children Visael and Abigail to the event to do a little shopping and to work on a project.

“My son’s homework for Cub Scouts brought us to the Mission,” Vasquez said. “Coming here tonight gave us the chance to work on his project and see the Mission at night. Everything was beautiful.”
