Additional observations  St. Louise is a parish of the Diocese of San Diego.  It was established in 1944.  It is a more traditional interior; the church was redone after The Cedar Faire partially destroyed it in 2003.  Renovations are ongoing; the most recent is the building of a handicapped ramp from the parking lot.  It is a smaller church, tabernacle and crucifix in the center.  There is a nice Marian grotto by the rectory.
