Founded on the Franciscan virtues of service and compassion, the Department of Social Outreach and Advocacy seeks to address the charitable needs of our parish community. Our passion for social justice is at the heart of all our programming and we strive to share our gospel of love throughout the community. DONATE TODAY


Our Franciscan identity invites us to have face to face encounters with those we serve. We have established community partnerships with fellow faith-based organizations working in the Oceanside community to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Feel the call to serve Christ in the poor? Join one of our serving teams, or dedicate some time to separate and organize clothes at one of our partner organization thrift stores.  If interested, please contact Angel Ibarra at 760-547-0708.
