SAN GABRIEL, Calif. (AP) - The historic San Gabriel Mission in Southern California is laying off a longtime employee because of financial hardships - and he may not be the last.

The mission says its spokesman and activities planner, Chuck Lyons, will depart after 12 years.

Lyons was a victim of budget cuts as the mission struggles with a decrease in Sunday donations from the parish.

The mission east of Los Angeles has 20 employees.

Business Manager Al Sanchez tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune (https://bit.ly/1pSWAK2 ) that officials are looking at more positions that could be eliminated.
