Sunday's Column

The High Altar of San Gabriel Mission Church
This week we visited a very old place - San Gabriel Mission.  One of the few things I miss about leaving Europe is the lack of really old places.  We always took them so much for granted over there.  But this place, although not as old as some of the churches we are used to goes back to California's origins.  It was founded in 1771, and is now part of the Claretian Order.  It was number four in a line of 21 missions up the state.
