Our charitable mission; to assist the intellectually and developmentally disabled. Founded in 1904, our members are bonded thru Catholic faith, Christian values and a desire to assist the less fortunate. We host field trips, boat rides, zoo trips, circus trips, picnics, Christmas parties, dinner dances, etc. and provide scholarships to students pursuing careers teaching the cognitively impaired. Alhambra Houses provide housing for the developmentally disabled and St. Francis Camp on the Lake gives them an opportunity to experience a week at camp specifically geared towards their different abilities.
Join us and be a part of a wonderful organization that is bonded in Catholic faith and provides assistance to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
We are men and women, young and old, clergy and lay person alike, socializing, memorializing Catholic history and giving of ourselves to assist the intellectually and developmentally disabled with a spirit of eternal hope derived from our common foundations in Christ. Many of our members have families, some are single, widowed or divorced but each is an instrument of God’s peace bringing light to the world.
There are no expectations placed on our members. We understand how busy each other's lives can be. Volunteer events, parties and fundraisers are always in the works.
