The new Saint Raphael Plaza will tell the rich story of the Church and Mission in the context of its location, relationship to the region, and surrounding community – from early populations to the present day. The plaza‚Äôs new design would provide universal access and encourage both community fellowship and quiet reflection. The design is a confluence of culture, setting and history. This project included historic documentation and producing a Historic American Landscape Survey (HALS) Short Form. In 2012, the project received a “Documenting the American Latino Landscape” HALS Challenge award.
