The California State Historical Resources Commission voted and have accepted our very own UPSES Chapel “Capela” as a State of California historical building!
It will now be sent to the Office of Historic Preservation Department in Washington D.C. to be finalized as a Historical Building.
A big thank you goes out to John & Geri Lauriano who have worked tirelessly on this project, congratulations!
In addition Supervisor Greg Cox and the Board of Supervisors proclaimed Tuesday, March 21, 2017 as Portuguese Chapel Day in the City of San Diego!
