Mission Santa Barbara Also known as "Queen of the Missions for its graceful beauty." Was founded December 4th, 1786, and was number ten of the 21 Franciscan missions throughout California.It was established by Padre Fermin Francisco de Lasuen. Padre Antonio Paterna was the first of many Padre’s in charge, but the first to begin building the mission.
This view is of the front of the original mission church. Notice the paintings on either side, they are the largest in all California Missions and date back approximately 200 years. If you look on the floor in the front you will see two stone plaques on the floor, these stone plaques bear the names of the early missionaries and laymen buried in a crypt below the floor.
Taken with Canon 1D Mark III w/16-35mm f/2.8L on a Gitzo GT5531S carbon fiber tripod and RRS BH-55 ballhead. Because of the wide range in tonality I made seven images 1-stop steps and processed with Photomatix and finished in CS4 Extended.
Question by Mia: How can I raise money for missions trip?
I don’t believe in asking for money from church/friends, what do I do? I need $ 3000 for a trip to an orphanage in the Ukraine. The trip is coming up in July. How can I raise money without asking for handouts?
Answer by Momof2 Well, don’t ask them for money but organize a car wash or sell candy bars, sub sandwiches, plants, etc.
My church youth group used to sell flats of plants in the spring. You’ll have to contact a nursery and tell them that you’re doing a fundraiser and see if they can give you a deal on the flats. Then take orders and have a pick-up day where the people who placed the orders pick up their plants.
Organize a rummage sale at your church. Ask people to donate things (clothes, furniture, books, toys, CDs, DVDs, knick-knacks, etc.) that they don’t need anymore. You’ll have to sort and price all the donations you get. Post flyers to advertise the sale in and around the neighborhood of the church. The profits of the sale go to the missions trip.
