ICF Branch 191

The Italian Catholic Federation (ICF) is a family-oriented, non-profit fraternal organization dedicated to promoting activities that build faith and family spirit and bring men, women and children of all ages together. By joining a local branch, ICF members share their culture, heritage and religious beliefs. We believe that together we accomplish more than one can alone. We are active in various cultural events throughout the country, support our local parishes, and provide various charities with financial and other support.

Branch 191 serves St. Frances Cabrini and is currently led by President James Jones. The entire leadership team includes:

ICF is among the most active organizations at St. Frances Cabrini and new members are always welcomed. Parishioners are encouraged to participate in any or all of the ICF Branch 191 faith based and social events. Updates are posted on the Parish website and Facebook pages. A monthly newsletter is also emailed to registrants who opt in to receive it. Contact Carlo Pedron for more information.

In July, ICF will have its  annual Baby Layette Shower. All items collected will be turned over to the San Jose Diocese Layette Program. The Layettes are given out by the Santa Clara County nurses. This Program has been going on continuously for close to 60 years and the need is greater today than ever before.
