Visiting for 1 night to the area and decided to attend a Christmas Eve mass here. My work takes me onto the SCU campus often but I've never been inside this historic mission. A beautiful, lively service with holiday songs and inspirational messages for the...More
GPS has a hard time finding the mission, so I suggest parking in the neighborhood and walking to campus. The mission itself was rebuilt after a fire in 1926, so it’s a reconstruction of the original. I loved how open and spacious the nave felt,...More

Beautiful historic church on the campus of Santa Clara University. Open to public during the day, excellent masses by Jesuit priests on Sunday. The original mission chapel burnt down, but this has been beautifully recreated.
The 10:00am Mass on Sunday is vibrant, beautiful, and welcoming. It's a gorgeous church, of course, and even though it's not 100 percent the original building, or items, the church still sets a lovely area for prayer and reflection.
The church had a bell tower, and two of three bells were a gifts of the king of Spain! The mission was also richly ornamented with paintings. If you want to know more, go to, Mission Santa Clara De Asia by, Toucan Vally... More
