St. Vincent DePaul Society
The members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Saints Peter and Paul Conference, offer assistance to individuals and/or families in need of spiritual or material assistance. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday in the Fr. Longeron Room in the Church from 7:30pm to 8:30pm. We welcome new members at any time.
How it works: A person calls 847-516-2636, ext.399 the St. Vincent de Paul ext. and asks for help, one member listens to those calls. Two active members are assigned to visit that person. They help them with their needs by paying bills and giving them additional resources that they can appeal to for help. When we meet, the members report on their clients without giving the client's name. We then see if there is any other way that we can help them.
We will post our client's needs here as we get new information. We will remove the needs when they are fulfilled. Here they are:
- Gift Certificates for food
- Gift Certificates for gas
Please call the parish center at 847-516-2636, ext. 399 if you have something to donate.
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, an international Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering tangible and spiritual support through prayer and person-to-person services to the needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
Organized locally, Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served, because in them Vincentians see the face of Christ.
