What we do

Monterey’s Santa Rosalia Branch 36 serves to spread Christ’s spirit throughout the Monterey Peninsula.  We provide financial support to our home parish, San Carlos Cathedral, offer academic scholarships for students entering college, and support local community endeavors such as High School Athletics (we believe that clean sports help build a clean community).  The ICF and we as Christians continue His tradition of love, hospitality, and works of charity as signs of Christ’s peace.  The ICF exemplifies laity’s contribution and participation in the apostolic mission of the Catholic Church. 

Join us

Please consider joining us at our monthly dinner meetings to help discuss ways to increase our charitable contributions.  The great food is a plus too.  We welcome ideas for fund raising and community involvement on behalf of San Carlos Cathedral.  You need not be Italian, all Catholics are welcome!
