About Mission San Gabriel

Founded in 1771, the Mission San Gabriel Arcángel serves as the cornerstone for the Catholic faith community in Los Angeles County. The mission’s parish is stewarded by the Claretian Missionaries of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. They respond to the community’s needs through love, justice, and peace.

The founding of Mission San Gabriel Archangel was a result of Padre Serra’s decision to establish a mission halfway between San Diego and San Carlos Borromeo. Thus, the fourth Mission began on September 8, 1771, near what is now the city of Montebello. This site enabled the Mission to become one of the most affluent missions in Alta, California. 

The connection between San Gabriel and Los Angeles began when eleven families, accompanied by a group of soldiers, crossed the Los Angeles River on September 4, 1781. This was ten years after the Mission was founded, and it established the San Gabriel Mission as the spiritual hub of the San Gabriel Valley.

Since 1908, the Claretian Priests have managed the Mission and done an exceptional job maintaining its condition. With the help of the laity, they have successfully restored the Mission to its former status as a strong spiritual hub in the Valley.
