Honoring Junipero Serra with 21 California Missions postage stamps
with each name of the Mission on each 21 stamps. In 1768, Serra was
appointed Superior of the Band of 15 Franciscans for the Indian
Missions on the Baja California Peninsula Coast and on February 3,
1768 Junipero Serra became the "Father Presidente due to the new
ruler of Spain, King Carlos III, putting Junipero Serra in charge
of the Alta California Missions, and during the American Revolutionary War, Father Junipero Serra had taken up collection
from his Missions parishes thoughout California and had given the
amount of $137.00 to help then, General of the Army, George Washington. On August 28, 1784, at the age of 70, Father Junipero
Serra died at the Mission of San Carlos Borromeo and is buried
under the Sanctuary Floor. On September 25th, 1988 Then Pope John Paul II had Beautified the Late Father Junipero Serra.

Therefore, I have submitted 21 Postage Stamp Designs to Postmaster
General Jim Potter for consideration honoring the Late Father
Junipero Serra with each name of each Mission on 21 Postage Stamps
as possible series of Collections as postage stamps. I will be also
submitting my designs to the King of Spain, Juan Carlos for the
consideration of Espana Postage Stamps honoring the Late Father
Junipero Serra.

Repectfully yours

It would be wonderful to honor such a courageous man as Father Junipero Serra on a U. S. postage stamp. He truly had a profound effect on the making of California and establishing these our United States. Thank you Father Junipero Serra!
