“nice little church for prayer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

Its one blocks from the main happenings in san rafeal.
great place if you need to get away for a half hour from the ecclecticness of SR, busy Marin traffic.
(Seems everyone is in a hurry these days.)
this church will help you slow down and connect with God and your own heart. JOY!

Many artifacts. Great guide. Interesting history. A very vibrant place, being used to the max! Variety of gifts and souvenirs. Wish gift shop were open more.

“A bit too much for the three year old but good for older kids.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013 via mobile

Perhaps it was just that he was already tired from earlier activities but the three year old really didn't do well here. Nice mission, in the heart of San Rafael... We had lunch then made a quick walk-thru... Nice mission in a great state of upkeep!
