Mission Santa Ysabel, Santa Ysabel, California

Mission Santa Ysabel is located on State Highway 79
just north of Santa Ysabel in San Diego County, California

 

Mission Santa Ysabel blev grundlagt i 1818 og bygget i 1819 som støttemission til Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala, med det formål at omvende de omkringboende indianere. Der er intet tilbage af den oprindelige missionsbygning, og den nuværende kirke blev bygget i 1924 og navngivet Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church. Menigheden består stadig mest af missionsindianere.

Mission Santa Ysabel was founded in 1818 and built in 1819 as an asistencia to Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala, with the purpose of converting the Indians living in the surrounding area. Nothing remains of the original mission structure, and the present church was built in 1924 and named Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church. The congregation still consists mainly of Kumeyaay Indians.

Dette gamle billede viser de oprindelige kirkeklokker, som var fra 1723 og 1767, og var nogle af Californiens ældste. De blev stjålet i 1926, og mens klokkeknebelerne blev fundet næste dag, fik menigheden aldrig klokkerne tilbage.
