The Sacred Heart Church of Ocean Beach is a Catholic Church located on the stretch of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard known as the Ministry Mile. Established on May 10, 1911, the church is well over a hundred years old. As the local population grew, the church was rebuilt from the small, original structures to much larger ones during the 1940's. Stained glass windows and arches make for a great atmosphere of worship.
Notable was the opening of the Sacred Heart Academy in 1948, a Catholic elementary school that is located at 4895 Saratoga Avenue. The school which has less than 200 students, has been well distinguished as one of the best Core Knowledge schools in California.
Sacred Heart has a real focus on community involvement and improving the lives of those less fortunate in the area. The youth program attracts twenty and thirty year olds to meet new people, develop their faith together, and opportunities for volunteer service in the neighborhood. Every other Tuesday from 5pm to 7pm, volunteers help feed the local homeless population in the Sacred Heart Parish Hall.
