Pre-order now!
In 18th-century Spain,stories of heroic missionaries spreading the good news of the Gospel in the New World ignited the imagination of a pious young boy. Miguel Serra’s dream soon became a reality. As Franciscan friar Junípero Serra, he voyaged to the New World and determinedly preached the love of Christ to the natives living in the unchartered wilderness of California. His motto was, “Always forward, never back.”
Pope Francis will canonize Father Serra on September 23 during his historic visit to the USA.
Join the “founding father of California” on his amazing journey and experience the saintly missionary zeal that led to the creation of the 21 Catholic missions in California. His presence and work are still very much alive through these beautiful missions that are visited by millions of people every year.
It is filled with enthralling colour illustrations on every page. 'Junipero Serra: Founder of the California Missions' is recommended for children ages 9 and up, and will make a perfect gift for Christmas, or any time of the year. Illustrated by Emmanuel Beaudesson.
