About the Italian Catholic Federation

In the first decades of the twentieth century, tens of thousands of Italians fled war-torn Europe and settled in San Francisco. Away from their homeland, their rich Italian Catholic heritage was at risk of being lost. In 1924 the concept of a lay apostolate organization, to unite Italian Catholics in their Faith, was formulated in San Francisco by two remarkable men. It would be called the Italian Catholic Federation, and the men who envisioned it were ICF co-founders Luigi Providenza and Father Albert Bandini.

The Italian Catholic Federation - Branch 229, at St. Rose of Lima, continues the dream of Providenza and Bandini.
