One of the priorities of this community is to establish programs that support family life and promote cultural awareness of the Igbo Community to our younger generation.
The Igbo Catholic community offers liturgical and cultural diversity. It was inaugurated in 2004 to address the spiritual and social needs of the people of Igbo descent from Nigeria in the Bay Area. It also promotes religious and cultural celebration in accord with appropriate Igbo liturgical awareness and understanding. The Igbo Catholic community's goal is to foster the propagation of Igbo culture and language through the Eucharistic celebration and other liturgical services such as teaching of Igbo language, catechism, Igbo religious hymns and songs (choir) to our children. Our hope is to transfer the richness of our culture to our children and share the Igbo culture with the rest of the parish and provide cultural activities such as native dance and artistic performances. The community aims to communicate and collaborate with other national and ethic communities on matters of mutual interest in the parish and the Diocese. The Igbo Mass celebration will be held on the first Sunday of every month, currently at All Saints Catholic Church. Mass features Igbo ethnic liturgical hymns, charismatic songs and music with exotic musical instruments.
