Centro de San Juan Diego

Centro de San Juan Diego (CDSJD) is a central location where we seek to put God’s love into action for those who may struggle to gain access to the basic needs of life so that they may never lose their faith in God and that their hope in Him may surpass everything. CDSJD is a place where community volunteers may gather and reach out to others by providing, according to the teaching of the Catholic Church, educational classes, spiritual and catechetical offerings, and social services, primarily to the Hispanic community. To paraphrase God’s teaching in Proverbs 3:27-28: We are called to not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in our power to do it.
