From Ocean Beach Historical Society: The OBHS Presents: The SISTERS of O.B. By Sister Marie Louise Flick RSCJ, Thurs. Oct. 15, at 7 pm , at the P.L. United Methodist Church, 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., O.B.
The nuns who live/ lived in O.B. are an important part of the history of Ocean Beach, San Diego and California. “Church Row” on Sunset Cliffs Blvd. goes back to O.B.’s early history, as does Sacred Heart Church and Sacred Heart School (now Preschool). These nuns played vital roles at St. Charles Academy, University High School, USD, St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center and other institutions.
The O.B. nuns have helped the homeless, aided children and the disabled as well as many others in our region.
Many of these nuns have multiple degrees, music backgrounds, various talents and interesting family histories. Some have lived in O.B. for short periords, while others for many years. Many can be seen walking around the community and enjoying our local coffee houses.
