Our mission is to Encounter, Love, and Serve Jesus, One Another, and The World.

Serve The Community

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. Our primary community service at St. B's includes

  • Saint Brigid Food Pantry - Pack, deliver, and/or distribute food through our Food Pantry on Tuesday mornings to our local PB community and beyond 
  • Give Back Sunday - Donate needed items (i.e. clothing, school supplies, toiletries, etc.) after Masses to various non-profit organizations

Also explore below some of these great organizations and ministries doing God's work with low-income youth, immigrants, and our homebound parishioners.

Compass Station

Right down the street, on the corner of Chalcedony and Cass, is an organization that is changing lives by sharing the love of Christ through hands-on, practical deeds of service. The Compass Station—a service of Shoreline Community Services—opened in May 2022. It is a place where those experiencing homelessness can do laundry, charge a device, and use the computers. But the main purpose is to connect people to services and resource providers that can help as they journey off of the street. Guests have access to benefits enrollment assistance, ID and driver’s license assistance, medical help, mental health and substance use services, housing options information, document recovery, legal and tax help, family reunification, and veterans services. Saint Brigid parishioners share their time and talents with guests at The Compass Station in a variety of ways including: as a nurse practitioner, a grant writer, and as volunteer guides.

Our parish is thrilled to be partnering with The Compass Station for our annual Christmas giving opportunity! We invite you to take an ornament from the giving tree located in the vestibule of the church beginning December 10. You may give to the Amazon Wishlist or, if you prefer to drop off a physical gift, you may place your items in the red bins at the church exits on December 17 and 18.

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 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.
