Mission Santa Barbara
Mission Santa Barbara, also known as Santa Barbara Mission, is a Spanish mission founded by the Franciscan order near present-day Santa Barbara, California. It was founded by Padre Fermin Lasuen in 1786.
The Mission is on a rise between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains and was consecrated by Father Fermin Lasuen, who had taken over the presidency of the Califirnia mission chain upon the death of Father Presidente Junipero Serra. Mission Santa Barbara is the only mission to remain under the leadership of the Franciscan Friars since its founding, and today is a parish church of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
