St. Junipero Serra

Happy Feast Day of St. Junipero Serra!
St. Junipero Serra (1713 – 1784) was a Franciscan priest from Spain who went to North America to preach about Jesus. He travelled extensively within California to set up missions and fought to protect native Americans from being mistreated by Spanish governors and soldiers. Today, many cities in the West Coast of North America, such as San Francisco and San Diego, owe their early growth to Father Serra's faithful missionary zeal. His feast day is on July 1.
