I got to visit Mission Santa Clara de Asis. The mission, the eighth in California, was founded on January 12, 1777 and named for St. Clare of Assisi the foundress of the order of the Poor Clares.
A rebuilt and restored Mission Santa Clara was consecrated in 1929, when it assumed its primary modern function as chapel and centerpiece of the University of Santa Clara campus:
|A wall. The only part of the original Mission|
Mission Santa Clara de Asis is a beautiful church and I love the fact that it is the centerpiece of the University of Santa Clara.
