The Immaculata

The church of The Immaculata, which was dedicated on May 5, 1959, owes its beginning to the Most Reverend Charles Francis Buddy, founding bishop of the Diocese of San Diego.

The church was originally designed to serve as the main chapel of the University of San Diego and of the Immaculate Heart Seminary. Today, it has become a separate parish encompassing Alcalá Park and the surrounding community.

Be My Witness RENEW Program

How effective do you think our parish is as an evangelizing parish? Beginning the weekend of February 15-16, 2020 the ‘Be My Witness’ RENEW program begins a series of 5 monthly surveys to gather your opinion on how we can be a better evangelizing parish. Your time to complete each of the five surveys will provide valuable information to the renewal leadership team to assess how we can become effective evangelizers for Christ. Each monthly survey takes about 5 minutes and the Renew leadership team is asking every parishioner age 13 and up to complete the survey. To ensure all parishioners are encouraged to complete the surveys we are reaching out to parishioners in a number of different ways, and you may receive more than one invitation to complete the survey. Please take the survey only once. Your responses are anonymous. Each survey
includes both standardized questions and a section for your general comments.
