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.
