March 2014 - San Diego CA

Immaculate Conception is located in the heart of the Old Town district. I posted photos here and here.



On July 22, 1917 Immaculate Conception Church was opened for divine worship. The Solemn Dedication took place on July 16, 1919 at the hands of Right Reverend John C. Cantwell, D.D., Bishop of Los Angeles and San Diego. The Church has been in continuous operation since that time and the ties to the Founding Fathers remain strong. In fact, two of the original bells of the San Diego Mission still summon the faithful to worship: one in the Mission San Diego de Alcala in Mission Valley, the other one, here in the bell tower of Immaculate Conception Church in Old Town. And here, upon completion of the Church renovation in July 1997, the Mission Bell began ringing again in Old Town.
