Photography Policy

Old Mission Santa Barbara and its 13 acres of grounds are private property, and home to the community of Franciscan Friars who live here at the Mission. To protect the privacy of the friars in their home and to ensure the most positive experience for our many visitors, commercial photography and videography is not permitted on Mission grounds without prior written approval from Mission administration.

How We Heal:
Listening for the Good

In response to the devastating Thomas Fire and recent mudslide that brought tragedy and heartache to Santa Barbara and our surrounding communities, Old Mission Santa Barbara and Cottage Health are partnering on a special event to help address the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual recovery needs of the community.

Saturday, February 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

Serra Hall, 2200 Garden Street. Seating available for 300.

A Community Panel moderated by Bill Macfadyen, Publisher of Noozhawk, and a Spiritual Panel moderated by Rev. Pam Washburn, Director of Spiritual Care Services, Cottage Health, will offer guidance on healing while identifying current needs of the community, and providing the opportunity to share experiences. Resource materials will be available, and refreshments will be served. We warmly welcome all who may be struggling to find their way through this difficult time.
