Father Joseph “Joe” Scerbo was a true Spiritual Father, leader, advisor, and very close friend to our local San Juan Capistrano Native Juaneno/Ajachemen and Historical Families. He truly walked with us and for us whenever we needed or called on him – he was always there for us! This is a photo of a radiant Father Joe as he assisted at one of our annual Old Mission Historic Cemetery Mass Liturgies. He would always say that he “felt great peace and happiness when Celebrating Mass for us or sharing a traditional meal gathering with our historical families” – MANY considered him our personal chaplain! He is greatly missed!
