CPF

Carrefour Pastoral de la Francophonie, Inc.(CPF) is a catholic not-for-profit organization founded in 2006 by Father Jacques LaPointe, a Franciscan priest.

The primary goal of CPF is to serve Francophone immigrants in New York and the surrounding region by catering to the social, educational, cultural, linguistic and spiritual needs and activities of the Francophone community in a local, national and international context. CPF works to promote the francophone language and culture in the United States and encourages dialogue between Americans and francophones.

CPF exists to address the concerns of individuals and families from all parts of the Francophone community with a view to promoting their well-being, as well as attempting to find solutions to their difficulties of whatever kind, providing resources and services to do so when necessary, especially to those with limited means.

CPF offers various social services including a food pantry, clothing distribution, French language lessons for children, English language lessons for adults, and social and legal support services in specific domains.

CPF also organizes a number of social events throughout the year to allow its members and other interested persons to meet each other and provide mutual help and advice for daily life. In particular, CPF organizes a coffee meeting every Sunday following the French service at Notre Dame, as well as an annual Thanksgiving dinner.

CPF offers its services through collaboration with several partner organizations, including the Immigration Service and the Emergency Food Services of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, the Francophone parish of New York : Notre Dame (Upper West Side), and the parishes of St. Stephen of Hungary (Upper East Side), the Annunciation Church in Harlem Holy Name of Jesus (Upper West Side), as well as through the many benefactors and donors who have supported the association since 2006.
