The mission, first established on June 3, 1770, in Monterey, CA. was named for Charles Borromeo, Archbishop of Milan, Italy.

I just had enough time to post this image to say thank you for all your kindness and support. I will not be back until after 4th of July and I will miss you all.

Congratulations to all finalist and Winners! You are all great. Blessings to you always!
