Karol Józef Wojtyła, Misión San Francisco de Asís, Mission San Francisco, Pope John Paul II, Vatican

Mission San Francisco

Mission San Francisco, also known as Misión San Francisco de Asís and as Mission Dolores, was established in 1788.

The inside of the basicilia has three domes, where the chapel members congregate.

This mission, unlike the others I’ve been to, in California has stain glass windows representing all of the different missions in the state.

The musuem of the Misión San Francisco de Asís displayed photos of Karol Józef Wojtyła, whom was renamed Pope John Paul II by the Vatican, visiting the mission in 1987.

Author’s Note:

Philip Hamilton got to meet the grandson of one of the blacksmiths of Sutter’s Fort, who works as a volunteer for Misión San Francisco de Asís.
