St. Joseph’s Day

March 19, 2016

Four years ago in 2016 as part of a memorable St. Joseph’s Day celebration, a tradition commemorating the annual return of the famous swallows to Capistrano, which was started by Father St. John O’Sullivan in the 1920s and is carried out each year on March 19th. Visitors at the Mission enjoyed a flyover as a tribute to America’s veterans, past and present. The flyover was conducted by The Condor Squadron during the official Bell Ringing ceremony at the foot of the Mission’s Saint Junipero Serra statue and historic Bell Wall.

March 19, 2019

As part of the annual St. Joseph’s Celebration commemorating the return of the swallow to Capistrano, we always enjoy hearing a  rendition of the National Anthem at the Mission’s historic bell wall. Join us as we look back at that tradition with Darren Huntting performing American’s favorite song, at the Jewel of the Missions in honor of those who served.
