Mission San Juan Capistrano

Today, we (Jojo, Jules, Atsi, Mark and I) went to the Mission in San Juan Capistrano. This special trip was so we could say a prayer for my dad and ask for the intercession of St. Peregrine (who has a chapel at the mission). We were supposed to be joined by my in-laws but because of the horrible air quality in Southern California (as a result of the wildfires), they had to pass and keep my nieces and nephews indoors.


Our first stop was the Mission Basilica where we heard mass.


The Church was very beautiful from the outside and moreso inside. I also loved the choir who sang exceptionally well.


There was a statue of St. Peregrine and we knelt to pay our respects. We also took some holy water to bring back home for dad.


After a quick lunch, we walked over to the mission grounds. Here are Atsi and Mark in front of the mission.


Jules and Jojo taking the audio tour and learning more about the mission.


Mark, Atsi, Jojo and I taking a breather in the courtyard.


Stopping at St. Peregrine's Chapel.


It was very quiet and dark inside. We each took time to say a prayer for dad, our family friend, Uncle Bobby, and Mark's mom, Marcia. We also purchased the novena cards so we could recite the novena.


Before leaving we wrote our petition in the prayer book.


And purchased three candles to ask for intercession.

Afterwards I felt a sense of peace leaving the place and am hopeful that our prayers were heard and will be answered.
