Mission San Buenaventura was founded in 1782 by Saint Junipero Serra as the last of the nine California Missions he founded. In a literal sense, Mission San Buenaventura has lived Father Serra’s revered advice, Siempre Adelante! Always Go forward! about as far as we can: the Mission property is fully developed with an historic church and rectory, Holy Cross School, beautiful gardens, museum and gift shop.

Now you can help fund a program to sustain ministries initially founded by St. Junipero Serra at Mission San Buenaventura and Holy Cross School for generations to come. On our website, you will find information about ways you can make a gift to us and enjoy valuable benefits such as lifetime income and tax savings. We look forward to helping you achieve your goals. Siempre Adelante!
