Inquiry Meeting

Meeting in the Church Narthex

This meeting is for anyone 18 and older interested in becoming Catholic. The RCIA is a process where one inquires and discerns towards the reception of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist. For more information, please call Maryjo Landuyt at 687-7778 or email saintdamianore@gmail.com.

Understanding the Eucharist

The sixth chapter of the Gospel of St.John is called the "Bread of Life Discourse".  Here Jesus Himself explains that He is the Bread come down from heaven; that His flesh is real food and His Blood is real drink. Our Gospel readings for the next 5 weeks will be taken from John 6. We have the opportunity to deepen our understanding of the Eucharist, or maybe even learn for the first time the teachings of our Catholic faith.

Catechists Needed

 St. Damian parish family - the young people of our parish need you! The Religious Education Ministry is looking for Catechists to share their love of Jesus Christ and to model a faithful Catholic witness to them. Please ask the Lord if He is calling you to this ministry and then CALL me at the RE office! MaryJo Landuyt 687-7778

Theology On Tap

Theology on Tap is a great program for young adults (21+ ) to gather in a "safe" environment ( Durbin's and Fox's) to hear Catholic speakers share their faith and challenge them to grow in their own. Flier is below:






St Damian Offers Prayer at the Farmer's Market

At the end of Mass we are sent to go and bring the love of God in Christ Jesus to the world around us.

A prayer team has a table at the Oak Forest Farmers Market on August 29 and September 12 to do just that. The team will also be present at the Back to School Community event in the Food 4 Less Commons on August 22nd from 10 am to noon.

In addition to offering prayer for those who ask, the team will be sharing general information about our parish, our school and selling Fair Trade coffee and Tea to support the Social Justice team. Please pray for our efforts and pay us a visit at the Market.

If you’d like more information please contact Deacon John.
