The Santa Cruz Mission
Papa wanted me to blog my info on the Santa Cruz Mission on the blog so, here it is.
Mission Santa Cruz
Fr. Fermin Lasuen founded Santa Cruz on August 28,1791 near the San Lorenzo River and Monteray bay. Then, in October he founded mission Soledad. Both turned out very troublesome.
TROUBLE AT THE MISSION
Mission Santa Cruz was a mission that all ways seemed to get into trouble. In 1799 a rain storm hit Santa Cruz so hard it had to be rebilt! Then, in 1812 Father Quinta was tricked into visiting a 'sick' native amarican and killed.
