We play at the diportiva just up from Mega, and in front of the entrance to Los Frailes.

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

The Basics
1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

A Game for Everyone
The USAPA currently estimates there are now over 400,000 players actively playing pickleball.

10:00am-12:00pm  
Cost: $300
Location: Meet in the Jardin across from the Parroquia
Contact:
Website: https://historicalwalkingtour.org/

English-speaking guides walk guests through San Miguel’s glorious past, showing them the city center, and its historic buildings and churches. The tour takes approximately two and one-half hours, covers a ten-block area and is mostly level walking. It is a definite “must” for any visitor to San Miguel! The Historical Walking tour has been awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence.

Some highlights of the tour include: La Parroquia – San Miguel’s iconic landmark church. Casa Canal – the magnificent former home of San Miguel’s most prominent family. El Nigromante – originally a convent, then San Miguel’s first school of art, now a cultural center. Vida Obra de General Ignacio Allende – David Siqueiros’ famous unfinished mural and House of Conspiracies – where the war of independence was planned.

Tours take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Groups meet in the Jardin across from the Parrroquia at 9:45 AM and leave at 10:00 AM. Cost: 300 pesos.

Your donation supports the work of Patronato Pro Niños, a non-profit organization that has provided dental and medical care to the children of the neediest families within our community and outlying area, since 1970. Revenue from the tours makes a substantial financial contribution the organization.

We value their belief and respect their human dignity and help restore hope in the last portion of their life.

Is a charitable organization founded in February 1989 . Each Wednesday for the past 23 years something very unique and empowering takes place in the sunny courtyard behind the Parroquia. Long tables covered with red and white checkered tablecloths are set up under laurel trees.

The tables are numbered according to age 65-95; the elders will be served fírst. Before the food is served, their thin old voices are lifted in a song of gratitude...

Location: St Paul's Church, Cardo 6
Contact:
Website:

Mary Jane Miller is organizing an 8 week directed group for prayer and and contemplation at St Paul's Anglican Church . The focus will be on Advent first and conclude with the Christmas season. We will ask what it means to come into the world, and the spiritual life which is activated as a result. Centering prayer, contemplative prayer and the prayer of quiet are all going to be explored in an effort to open ourselves to listening to God and remembering whose we are.
Beginning December1st and January 19th at St Paul's Church
The format will be simple, 20 minutes of quiet, 20 minutes of conversation, discussion observation, etc and finalize the time with another 20 minutes of quiet. 4 weeks in Advent and 4 weeks following Christmas, 50 pesos donation per session and there is no requirement you come to them all.
Every Thursdays 4 PM
IDEAS to be EXPLORED
Advent tells us Christ is near and
Christmas tells us Christ is here.

Christmas represents God's brilliant idea to become human and walk among us! Why do such a thing? Because we need an image of love for it to grow within us, to show us the way and to have a reference point for what is true, good and lasting love.
Come and prepare a place within yourself. Epiphany is the Christian celebration of what other religions call enlightenment. Enlightenment is the inward realization and consciousness of being identified with who we really are. We are individual expressions or manifestations of God, a wave of energy, light and purpose which flows through us.
"All great spirituality teaches about letting go of what you don't need and who you are not. Then, when you can get little enough and naked enough and poor enough, you'll find that the little place where you really are is ironically more than enough and is all that you need. At that place, you will have nothing to prove to anybody and nothing to protect.
All are welcome to share tier insights and experiences. Peace

Sundays at 9am
We play at the diportiva just up from Mega, and in front of the entrance to Los Frailes.

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

The Basics
1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

A Game for Everyone
The USAPA currently estimates there are now over 400,000 players actively playing pickleball.

Cost: $300
Location: Meet in the Jardin across from the Parroquia
Contact:
Website: https://historicalwalkingtour.org/

English-speaking guides walk guests through San Miguel’s glorious past, showing them the city center, and its historic buildings and churches. The tour takes approximately two and one-half hours, covers a ten-block area and is mostly level walking. It is a definite “must” for any visitor to San Miguel! The Historical Walking tour has been awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence.

Some highlights of the tour include: La Parroquia – San Miguel’s iconic landmark church. Casa Canal – the magnificent former home of San Miguel’s most prominent family. El Nigromante – originally a convent, then San Miguel’s first school of art, now a cultural center. Vida Obra de General Ignacio Allende – David Siqueiros’ famous unfinished mural and House of Conspiracies – where the war of independence was planned.

Tours take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Groups meet in the Jardin across from the Parrroquia at 9:45 AM and leave at 10:00 AM. Cost: 300 pesos.

Your donation supports the work of Patronato Pro Niños, a non-profit organization that has provided dental and medical care to the children of the neediest families within our community and outlying area, since 1970. Revenue from the tours makes a substantial financial contribution the organization.
