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.

Italian Catholic Federation St Frances Cabrini Branch 191
Announces Liz Donaldson Memorial Parish Lunch Ministry Fund
Liz’s passion was helping those in need. For this purpose, Liz coordinated, along with the Parish Staff, The St. Frances Cabrini Parish Lunch Ministry Program. She oversaw the preparation of all lunches which are distributed daily to those in need.
We, the members of Branch 191, have established a fund for this purpose in memory of Liz. All donations will be used to continue this special program.
Checks may be made payable to “ICF BR 191” and send check to ICF BR 191, c/o Mary Rossetto, 1954 Bernice Way, San Jose, CA, 95124. An acknowledgement will sent to the family of Liz Donaldson.
Thank you for supporting the Parish Lunch Ministry.
