Today we celebrate the feast of Blessed Junipero Serra, who will be canonized by Pope Francis in Washington, D.C. on September 23. Serra was an 18th century Franciscan missionary who spread the faith in California. The church pictured here was used by the community Serra founded and still stands today in the Diocese of Monterey.

We are incredibly grateful to Holy Family Catholic Community in Inverness, IL for raising more than $70,000 in their 2015 Lenten service project to benefit Catholic Extension's funding of St. Mary's Mission School and Church at Red Lake in the Diocese of Crookston, Minnesota. This is the second time the parish has generously supported us with their Lenten project. Learn more: http://cathext.in/1RheWS3
