Thursday, Sept 10 – 7:30 pm (online with Zoom)

Join us as we welcome historian Eric Plunkett who will speak about Franciscan friar Junípero Serra y Ferrer (1713 -1784) who led the effort to establish establishing the California Missions. He was a key figure in the development of Alta California and was canonized in 2015 but has become a controversial figure in some circles.

Rioters recently tore down statues of Serra in San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles. OCHS’ program is not intended to praise or condemn Serra, but simply to explain what he did while he was here.
