Fr. Virgil Cordano Center is a collaborative ministry of the Franciscan Friars at Old Mission of Santa Barbara and the Daughters of Charity at St. Vincent’s that is rooted in the Gospel and the Social Teachings of the Catholic Church. Faithful to the traditions of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Vincent de Paul, we provide a place of welcome and support for the human and spiritual well-being for our sisters and brothers in need.
Community: Creating a community through the sharing of gifts and friendship, acknowledges our connection with our neighbors as brothers and sisters, equal in the dignity bestowed by God.
Joy: Appreciating the God of abundance, we joyfully and humbly serve and walk with others in the spirit of St. Francis and St. Vincent.
Welcome: Honoring all people as part of God’s Creation, we offer a place of welcome for those who seek peace and solace.
Respect: Embracing diversity and building relationships that reflect high regard for the worth and dignity of each person.
