Our mission: Inspired by Gospel values, 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 FrÉdÉric Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
SVdP offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. This aid may take the form of intervention, consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. An essential precept of the Society's work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.
While no work of charity is foreign to the Society, we at SMMP help those in our local area with basic needs such as shelter (rent or mortgage payments), food, medication, utilities and gasoline. We give aid to parishioners and those living within our parish boundaries no matter their faith. Should you need assistance, contact the parish office 630-369-0777
Should you wish to contribute, SVdP envelopes are in the narthex and can be placed in the collection basket.
Our large Blue hamper is located in the upper hallway, just off the narthex
Your donations are needed & are greatly appreciated!
