The ICF (Italian Catholic Federation as it is known) was established in 1924 in San Francisco , California . Today, the ICF reaches out to all Catholics, sharing our faith and heritage with them. The founders had a dream and with branches located throughout California, Illinois, Nevada and Arizona, the ICF is keeping their dream alive.
The Italian Catholic Federation is an organization founded on the principles of charity, apostolate works and a commitment to preserving the Italian heritage.
St. James Branch #161 is the ICF Branch for St. Patrick Church. The meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month (except July) at 7:30 pm, in Healy Hall.
