Additional observations Blessed Sacrament is a historic parish on the coast in Northern California. It is part of the diocese of Santa Rosa. The church was built in 1896, and is the central historical feature to the town of Elk, which is home to a few hundred people. The church today looks much like it did more than a century ago, including a traditional altar and many traditional statues. It has a terrific ocean view.
