2019 is a jubilee year of St. Junipero Serra, a Franciscan missionary priest who founded a number of missions along the California coast in the 1700’s – missions that became the center of what are now major cities. The first mission was founded in 1769 in San Diego. We will be visiting the northern missions including San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo where the holy saint’s remains lie. We will also be visiting the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi in San Francisco. And of course, no trip to northern California could be made without a visit to Napa Valley.
