Central California Missions

July 9-16, 2018

Many visit the California missions; few do so from the stance of a pilgrim with faith, prayer and Franciscan spirituality. Led by well trained Franciscan and historical guides, you will journey through the northern missions as the mystery and meaning of each place is explored. Journey with us along this mission trail in the United States as together, with companion pilgrims, we explore the unfolding of a unique faith and cultural drama that still continue to touch our lives. Our Franciscan Pilgrimage to the California Missions is a three year program during which time all 21 missions are visited.

This year, the focus is on the central missions which include Santa Barbara, San Buenaventura, La Purisima, Santa Ines, San Luis Obispo, San Miguel and San Antonio.

Lodging is at Casa Maria Retreat Center, Santa Barbara, California. Rooms have private baths.

A pilgrimage to the Southern California Missions will be scheduled in 2019.
