St. Junipero Serra’s statue will be missing from campus at the University of San Diego for the third school year in a row.

The Catholic university hid the statue during the summer of 2020 after other statues of the saint were vandalized.

Critics have taken issue with Serra’s conversion of Native Americans to Catholicism.

The university won’t provide concrete details on what it will take to return the statue.

“The St. Junipero Serra statue remains in university storage,” the university told The College Fix via email on July 11. “While the leadership team has not made any decisions at this time, the building name is Saints Tekakwitha and Serra Hall, so any new installation of statues in the future will likely represent both saints.”

The university renamed Serra Hall to include St. Kateri Tekakwitha, a Native American saint.

The university told The Fix in January 2021 that there were “several construction projects going on at this time on campus” that delayed finding a new place for the statue…
