How do we serve those in Pacific Beach (PB) and San Diego?
We are blessed to call San Diego our home but we are also called to serve those in our community who are in need. Through outreach to our community, we support organizations that provide help, dignity and solidarity. At St. B's we host Give Back Sunday about six times per year, which is an opportunity for you and your family to donate needed items that can be dropped off after Masses. Also explore below some of these great organizations and ministries going God's work with immigrants, the homeless and homebound.
Food Distribution - join other St. B's parishioners in conjunction with Catholic Charities and the San Diego Food Bank (coming in January 2020)
4th Friday of every month
All food commodities will be delivered by the San Diego Food Bank, and the monthly distribution will operate for approximately 3.5 hours. Our parish will be responsible for donating space, providing "power people" to operate the distribution, and extending a spirit of hospitality to our brothers and sisters in need. Helpers can serve as individulas, family, or a group. We hope you consider joining us in this new parish ministry. To learn more click the icons below and check out their Ministry Highlight.
Support Local Immigrant Youth in Crisis
Students Without Limits was started in 2012 by parishioners Kevin and Amie Scully and supports traumatized children separated from their parents by providing legal and mental health support. They accompany children through the trauma of ICE taking their mom or dad and connect them with critical resources. They also guide DACA youth through the college application process and through to college graduation. They do this through year-round in-school support groups called "little family meetings" at 13 local high schools.

Did you know several of our parishioners are homebound and unable to make it to Mass? See various ways you can help them:
- Visit our homebound and take them the Eucharistic
- Make phone calls to homebound, family member or someone whose day you know would be brightened by hearing from you
- Write greeting cards - cards are sent seven times a year including their birthday (if it's provided to us)
- Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet with us on Thursdays at 3 pm during adoration or pray on your own
