The church of The Immaculata was dedicated on May 5, 1959. It was the main chapel of the University of San Diego and the Immaculate Heart Seminary as well as the Parish Church for the Linda Vista and Southern Clairemont communities. Architect Frank Hope designed the building and L.J. Ninteman was the contractor.
