The Society of St. Vincent de Paul


Hotline (847) 869-6134, for people in need
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.
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
We meet the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month
in the Parish Center.
Members, who are known as Vincentians, 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.
Please consider joining our mission by becoming a Vincentian. We have three types of membership: active, associate and contributing. To attend a meeting, or to learn more, you can call our hotline and leave a message. A member will return your call, to tell you more about Vincentian life.
