The Memorial Church of the Holy Sepulchre, part of the Franciscan Monastery in Washington D.C.

All eyes will soon be on the Basilica known as ‘America’s Catholic Church’ when Pope Francis celebrates Mass there and canonizes Junípero Serra. A mile away, tucked in a residential section of the District’s Brookland neighborhood, you’ll find the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America — where Serra is a revered fellow Franciscan. We learn more about the monastery’s history in Brookland, the mission of those who worship and work there, and the institution’s connection to Serra.
