Pro Labore Dei Mission


Pro Labore Dei Mission - Feed My Lambs - has been serving  the poverty stricken in nearby Robbins for the last 15 years.  St. Damian Church has been helping the Mission by making bag lunches, donating Easter baskets, groceries and other items needed.  The Mission was highlighted in a 4 part series in our bulletin.  You can find it here if you missed it.

The Mission is in need of volunteers to help distribute lunches and sort clothing and other donations on Saturdays from 10 AM to 1 PM at the Robbins Police and Fire Station.  Deacon Rich Korepanow and several St. Damian parishioners have served at the Mission.  For more information on how you can help, email Deacon Rich at [email protected]
