Dear Divine Child Community,
Thank you to the over 500 attendees at our official Blessing and Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Divine Child Alumni Athletic Complex. Please VIEW THE VIDEO LINK HERE of the field and future needs on the campus.
Our Capital Campaign committee is hard at work to secure additional funds in order to complete the athletic complex by the fall. Our immediate need is $180,000 for lights so that our CYO and High School Falcons can play under stadium lighting and fully utilize the complex during the evenings. If you have considered donating to this project, now is the time. Your donation would enable us to purchase and install the lights this summer. Please click here, Investing in Excellence, to donate online or for more information.
Also, a few Naming and Recognition Opportunities still exist for the athletic complex. This is a great opportunity to come together as a graduating class, family, or organization and leave your legacy in this state-of-the-art facility. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact the Advancement Office today at 313.216.0893.
Thank you for your continued support!
