Celebrating Catholic Schools Week!

Thank you all for your dedication to St. Damian School and our Catholic Schools Week Celebration. Energy and enthusiasm filled each event from our parishioners to our students!

February holds so much excitement as our second graders will participate in their First Communion retreat, our 8th graders head to Washington, D.C. and our entire Junior High will celebrate an Archdiocesan wide prayer service at St. Rita High School.

She embodies the description of a Catholic School Educator and we are blessed to work with her each and every day! Thank you, Mrs. Lannan for your commitment to the St. Damian Community.

Donate to TCS!

Please consider a donation in the form of a Tax Credit Scholarship! Remember to indicate that your donation should be restricted to St. Damian School.

Several donors have partnered with the scholarship granting organization Empower Illinois and the Archdiocese of Chicago to create a matching gift pool.

Every dollar donated to this program through Empower Illinois between now and Feb. 29, 2020 and designated to a school operated by the Archdiocese of Chicago will be matched with two dollars from this pool (limitations apply). The program will end when all matching funds have been depleted or on Feb. 29, 2020, whichever comes first.

A $5,000 donation will have a tremendous impact. With the 75 percent tax credit you receive on the donation and this match, it will have a net cost to you of $1,250 and will provide $15,000 in scholarships for low-income families.

After April 1, 2020, any matching gift program funds that are not awarded at a designated school will be reallocated to low-income students at schools with unmet demand.

We invite you to visit the link below to learn more and triple your donation.
