Things to See at the University as a Historic point in the Silicon Valley

Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Santa Clara University blends high-tech innovation with a social consciousness grounded in the Jesuit educational tradition.

Mission Church

From Mission to University

The story now turns to Mission Santa Clara de Asis, the 8th mission in the chain of 21 Franciscan missions established by Padre Junipero Serra. It was first founded January 12, 1777 on the banks of the Guadalupe River (just north of Hwy 101 near the Mineta International Airport runway) and it was the first to bear the name of a woman, St. Claire of Assisi, an early companion of St. Francis. Flood, fire and earthquake forced five relocations until the Mission finally settled on this site in 1822. The current building was constructed in 1927-28 after a fire and is a replica of the early 19th century church. Mass is held most days at noon, and the Mission and surrounding gardens are very popular sites for weddings, concerts, and events. Campus Ministry directs the Mission Church.

History of the Mission Santa Clara de Asis
