The Italian Catholic Federation (ICF) is a non-profit, fraternal organization for Catholics. Founded in 1924 in San Francisco, CA. Our moto, Ignem Veni Mittere, “I came to light a fire.” The Federations mission is to uphold and develop the religious spirit among its members throughout the community. Members of the ICF enjoy the fellowship of other Catholics and their families by praying and playing together.
The Italian Catholic Federation has approximately 14,000 members in 172 Catholic parishes in California, Arizona, Nevada and Illinois.

ICF Branch 227 was formed in 1968 and we have approximately 140 individual and family members. We have a board that meets once a month and our general membership meets once a month for dinner meeting. Our largest fund raising function is our Lenten Friday Fish Fry’s.
We turn the money we earn back into our community including Saint Joseph’s and many of the ministries listed on this web site. The only criteria to becoming a member of ICF is to be participating Catholic.
