Saint Damien of Molokai

Father Damien of Molokai

Father Damien of Molokai means a lot for the vol­un­teers. He is like a lead climber in the great adven­ture of love and com­pas­sion. He loved the leper island of Molokai where he chose to serve as a priest, to become him­self a leper and to die from this ter­rible dis­ease. It is why we chose to place under his pro­tec­tion the fra­ter­nity of those who, among the friends of chil­dren, feel called to devote their whole lives to God and to the poor living the mis­sion of Heart’s Home.

On October 11, 2009, the Blessed Father Damien has been can­on­ized by Pope Benedict XVI in the Basilica St Peter of Rome, becoming thus Saint Damien of Molokaï.
