St. Augustine, Fla (Sept. 5, 2018) - On Saturday, September 8, a full day of activities in St. Augustine portray and honor the founding of America's First Parish and St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. Both were founded together 453 years ago on Sept. 8, 1565, by Pedro Menéndez de Avilés. The event will start at the Mission Nombre de Dios, 27 Ocean Ave., and then process to the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park, 11 Magnolia Ave. At 10 a.m. at the Mission Nombre de Dios a historical re-enactment of the Spanish landing will feature the Historic Florida Militia's Men of Menendez arriving on shore aboard the St. Augustine Maritime Heritage Foundation's Chalupa (a boat that would have been used to ferry colonists from their tall ship to the shore.) The landing will be followed by a Holy Mass at the rustic altar on the mission grounds at 11 a.m.
