|Mexico City Chalco Mission Map|
The Mexico City Chalco Mission is a new Mission organized in July of 2013. It is one of 58 new Missions announced earlier in the year. The Mission is located in the Southeast portion of the State of Mexico. From the attached map it appears to be somewhat mountainous. We are excited to see what it is like. There is a 15,000 foot volcano near the Mission that erupted a few weeks ago.
