IPTC INFO
CaptionThe first Mass on or near the site was celebrated in a tent by Father Francisco Palou on the feast of the Apostles Peter and Paul 29 June and on 28 July the first Mass was offered up in the temporary chapel. Father Palou on the title pages of the mission records gives 1 August as the day of foundation. The early missionaries however always celebrated the 4th of October as the patronal feast of the mission. __________ Father Palou as the head of the friars in Lower California led a protracted struggle with the hostile Governor Phelipe Barn who sought to undermine the position of the missionaries and Indians When in 1773 the Franciscans turned the peninsula missions over to the Dominican Fathers Father Palou joined his brethren in Upper California and acted as superior until 1774 when Father Serra returned. In November of that year he accompanied Captain Rivera's exploring expedition to the Bay of San Francisco and on 4 December planted the cross on Point Lobos in view of the Golden Gate and Pacific Ocean the first priest to reach that point. In June 1776 he accompanied Lieutenant Moraga to the same bay and on June 28 offered up the first holy Mass on the spot later under the Mission Dolores or San Francisco which Father Palou founded a few weeks after. __________ SOURCE has removed text http://bible.tmtm.com/wiki/Dolores_Mission_Catholic_Encyclopedia
