In commemoration of All Souls Day and in remembrance of the Comboni priests buried in the Pala cemetery we celebrate Mass every November at the Pala Chapel. The mission was founded in 1816, the mission was fully restored by the Comboni Missionaries in 1948 and cared for by them until 1991 when it was turned back to the Diocese of San Diego.
Join the Comboni Missionaries on Saturday, Nov. 11, at Pala Mission in California. Each year in November we take half a day to visit Mission San Antonio de Pala and celebrate Mass in the small chapel that sits adjacent to the Indian cemetery. Mass is followed by a blessing of the graves of the Comboni priests that are buried there.
