P.A.D.S. Schedule:

Below is the PADS dinner schedule for 2017-18. If you can help out or have further questions. Please contact our PADS coordinators.

John Orso (815)


Fr. McCormick Council 3880 will continue the worthy tradition started by Brother John L Orso and led for many years by Brothers PGK John M. Orso and Steve Bright. There was some concern earlier after the hosting church and major sponsor were changed. Pioneer Center is the new Sponsor, and the church that we will be serving dinners at is the new Willow Crystal Lake. Linda from Bethany will still assist us in coordinating the serving for a while longer. Our only change, really, is that we do not need to have the food at Willow until between 6:30 and 6:45 PM. Everyone involved at this point thinks this will ease our burden. 

With this, WE NEED YOUR HELP! As the first dinner starts on Sunday, October 28th, we are playing catch-up! Here is the tentative schedule:


Date Provider
12/29/2019 Jim Skaja
1/26/2020 Robert Kosin
2/23/2020 PGK Pat Maguire
3/30/2019 Open
4/26/2020 Dan OConnell
