Parish Family Fun Night
It’s been a long, hard winter. Now it’s time to sit on the porch and read a good book while breathing in the fresh, clear air of Spring. During this session, you will hear Sue, Bill, Mary and Caitlin recommend a book they have enjoyed...a book that has awakened in them a spiritual message.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a book with a spiritual message they have enjoyed. The reward for coming is leaving with an enriching reading list for your summer reading.
Inspired by Gospel values, St. Vincent de Paul Ministry (SVdP), a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
St. Vincent de Paul Ministry has a long history at St. Margaret Mary. SVdP offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. This aid may take the form of intervention, consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. The ministry provides help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.
We have a donations hamper in the church, on the upper level near the Narthex. These donations help supply our six thrift stores in the Joliet diocese. Proceeds from sales at our thrift stores are distributed back to the parishes where funds are needed. For donations of furniture and larger items, call 630-231-4658, or visit St. Vincent de Paul Joliet to arrange free pick up at your home. Automobile donations are accepted, whether the car is running or not.
Financial donations are received gratefully. SVdP envelopes are in the narthex and can be placed in the collection basket. To donate online, visit our parish's auto-giving page for SVdP:
As a worshipping Roman Catholic parish family we are guided by a collegial partnership of laity, pastor, and ministerial staff. Together we seek to foster spiritual growth through the active practice of Christianity. By the sharing of our God-given talents and resources with all God's people we strive for peace and justice as the "Parish with Heart."
