San Antonio, 3rd Mission, Founded in 1771

Founded: July 14, 1771 by Father Junipero Serra
Named for: Saint Anthony
Fr. Serra knew that this third mission’s success was important to assure that his dream of a “chain” of missions be realized. Fr. Serra was so anxious to get this mission underway he hung a bell from a large oak tree on their very first day there and vigorously rang it to attract “All the Gentiles” within earshot.
