Fellow parishioners The church is located in the predominantly Latino Barrio Logan neighborhood of San Diego.  Many come from outside the parish boundaries, drawn by the traditional liturgy and sacraments.

Parking There is a small parking lot.  Park in the neighborhood, but not in the alley alongside the rectory or in front of the homes that are directly in front of the church on the Irving Ave. side.

Additional observations St. Anne’s has been staffed by the Fraternity of St. Peter since 2008.  It is “the premier traditional parish in San Diego County,” per the parish website.  It is a small church; overflow seating is available in the courtyard.  Business has been booming, with additional masses added.  The dress code of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome is in effect; see the parish website for details (please leave the correction of offenders to the priests).
