History

A house on the property in Licking was converted into a chapel. The Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi, who staffed the hospital in Mountain View, donated many of the original furnishings. The fledgling mission church, originally under the care of the Resurrectionist Fathers of Sacred Heart Parish in Salem, later became a mission of St. Mark in Houston.
