This past year, Mission San Juan Capistrano worked diligently to develop experiences to serve our teachers, students, members, visitors, donors and event go-ers during the time of closure due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Mission debuted its first ever live performance digitally as part of the new “Mission at Home” experiences. The Mission is proud to be expanding its events digitally and will continue to bring our visitors one-of-a-kind unique digital experiences. View calendar.
