Additional observations  Crescent City is a coastal town in the diocese of Santa Rosa, not far from the Oregon border and three blocks from the ocean.  St. Joseph’s got its start in 1869, when Catholics bought an abandoned Methodist church and converted it to the city’s first Catholic church.  The church was rebuilt multiple times; twice it burned down in fires.  The fifth and current St. Joseph Church was built in 1961.  A Good Friday 1964 tsunami which devastated much of Crescent City left the church untouched (and its parking lot littered with debris).
