Christian Service Commission

The Church of the Divine Child’s Christian Service Commission is dedicated to answering God’s call to service by promoting programs that assist the parishioners of Divine Child and members of the surrounding community with their spiritual and human needs.  The Commission meets in the Elementary School Library on the second Monday of the month, September through May.  Meetings begin at 7 p.m. All parishioners are invited to share their time and talent with the Commission as it works to fulfill its mission of service, love, justice and peace.
For further information, please call the Parish Rectory at 313.277.3110.
