St. Vincent de Paul

This is a group of men who seek to respond to the needs of the poor in our community. The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a part of a world wide organization which follows the example of St. Vincent de Paul. St. Vincent de Paul distinguished himself as a model of Christian charity and members of this Society emulate St. Vincent’s example.

The members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society meet bi-weekly to provide ongoing assistance to individuals and families and emergencies. People seeking assistance should contact a member of the Society through the Parish Office, and an appointment will be made to assess the requests. Men seeking to join the Society should contact a member through the Parish Office.

Ongoing support is also provided to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, St. Thomas of Canterbury and St. Stanislaus Kostka soup kitchens and food pantries. For more information, contact a member of the Parish Staff or coordinator Peter Keller.

St. Vincent de Paul News:

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Chicago is launching their 3-D: "Don’t Dump – Donate!" campaign.   If you’ve been procrastinating replacing your dining room, living room, bedroom or kitchen furniture because you don’t want the hassle of putting an ad in the paper or Craig’s list or hauling the furniture out of the room yourself, just dial 773-779-6700 and you’ll be able to schedule a pick up.

Your gently used furniture will then be taken to one of the two thrift stores that the Society operates for resale. Shoppers these days are looking for good used furniture and good bargains. The thrift stores provide both.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul has been serving the poor and needy since 1857. In this challenging economic environment, more and more people are turning to this organization for help. So make the call--you can make a big difference in someone's life. Not only can we find a home for your furniture, but your donation will be tax deductible.
