The conference of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SVdP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving those in need with basics for human dignity by aiding the poor. Members, called Vincentians, make person to person visits with families and individuals facing hardships, offering basic resources for human dignity such as food, shelter, and clothing. Assistance includes help with utility bills, rent, transportation, medical expenses, and emotional/spiritual support to ease a difficult time.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) helps those in need by acts of physical and spiritual compassion. In the process, members advance their own human and spiritual development and formation. Members visit the poor and needy in our community to provide companionship and assure that their basic needs are met. SVdP provides emergency one-time assistance, often networking with other area SVdP conferences and organizations.
It Is Good
Vincentians and friends of the Society served at Sunday’s dinner in Lake Zurich. We are grateful to share God’s love by supporting Emmaus House’s mission to help those struggling with poverty and its uncertainties. The room was filled with over 100 individuals and families, including the cute boy who joined in our group picture!
Thanks to all the volunteers, our friends at Emmaus House, and Little Joey’s. Special gratitude to donors who support the work of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at St. Mary. We utilize donations to serve the poor in multiple capacities over the course of the year. This meal is just one of the important ways we let people know they are not forgotten. The meal (garden salad, mostaccioli, corn and fresh fruit salad) costs only $4.27 per person! After feeding the guests, the extra tray of garden salad and mostaccioli was taken to American Legion Post 911, Wauconda.
If you’re interested in volunteering at Emmaus House or at our next dinner in August, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Saint Vincent de Paul Thrift Store accepts clothing, linens, and other small household items (dishes, pots, pans, lamps, etc). Your donations help us serve those in need with the basics for human dignity.
