California Mission in San Diego, California

Monday, May 28, 2007 at 2:13 PM

On Sunday Rudy and I went to Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala - California's First Church. It was nice to attend Mass solely for the purpose of going. The past few years it seems the only time I enter a church is for a funeral...humm..but this visit was nice and I might do it again. I learned it was Pentecost Sunday and they said it was the birthday of the catholic church. So maybe it was the perfect day to wander back in.

I got lots of great photos for sketching, but with my DH who doesn't sit still for too long, I was only able to take photos. I hope to return to the mission soon because it had great sketching potential!

    I visited this church last July when visiting the southwestern states - it's a wonderful place. I loved the museum bit where they tell you how it's changed over the years. I'd never realised before about the Mission movement.
