Padres had many responsibilities beyond simply holding masses. They served as educators, community leaders, and planners and supervisors for many aspects of mission life. This book explains how one became a Franciscan, and the goal of these priests who were sent to California. We also see the simplicity of their daily life contrasted to some of the difficulties encountered with trying to convert people with such different customs and culture.
