Beautiful classic old mission church on a Bluff right on the river. Open to the public and docent was there to tell us all about the history. It’s worth the walk to the end of the road to check it out.

Stopped by to see this church and a lovely docent provided a lot of history. Certainly a gem to be preserved and sounds like a thriving current congregation
