"I recently had the opportunity to visit my classmate, Fr. Brendan Buckley, who is serving in the Old Mission of Santa Inez in Salvang, CA.  While there we visited several old missions, Hearst Castle and the Reagan Library.  The only Old Mission that we visited that is not in operation at this time is "La Purissima" which is part of the State Park System of California.  "La Purissima" was set up to represent what the mission possibly looked like at the time that the Franciscan Friars served the people of the area. Enjoy the photos!"
