The Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Hotline (847) 869-6134
In the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul, and inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spirituality by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering.
We meet the second Wednesday of each month in the Parish Center at 7:00 p.m.
Members, who are known as Vincentians, as a reflection of the whole family of God, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group and economic level. 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.

Our Service

People in need call our hotline. They might request help for food, rent, mortgage, light, heat, water, transportation, phone, clothing, prescriptions or furniture. We arrange a visit to their home and determine just how we can best help. We visit in pairs. Our visits with those in need are confidential. We then work to deliver what is needed.

Join Us

The Society is easy to join. There is no initiation procedure, no special qualifications are required other than the desire to join with others to help those in need for the love of God. You can also support our work through your donations of money, food, clothing or cars.
