Yerba Buena - the bay side settlement with 450 inhabitants was swamped by the Gold Rush prospectors in 1849. While evangelizing to the Mexican and Iberian population in Latin language, Junípero Serra and his Franciscan brothers established the mission church of San Francisco de Asís known as Dolores Mission. The US military appealed to the Bishops in surrounding states for assistance and they dispatched two priests from Oregon to assist in ministering to the rapidly expanding and multi-lingual population. On 12th June 1849, Saint Francis Parish was established at Presidio at the military built church. The Norman Gothic church with its twin campanile was opened on 17 March 1860, but later razed due to structural damage during the earthquake. The current church building was erected on the same location with a beautifully decorative interior, stained glass windows and magnificent pipe organ - and remains today as a national shrine of St Francis of Assisi in the city bearing his name.
