Mission San Francisco De Asis

Mission San Francisco De Asis has always had a central place in the religious, civic, and cultural life of San Francisco. The mission is named for Saint Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Franciscan Order, but is also commonly known as “Mission Dolores” due to the presence of a nearby creek named Arroyo de los Dolores, or “Creek of Sorrows.” 460 more words
