The Society of St. Vincent de Paul aspires to “embrace the world in a network of charity”

Members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (Vincentians) are people who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need.  No matter our age, ethnic background, or financial status we are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need.

The St. Mary Conference of St. Vincent de Paul 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, consulation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. An essential precept of the Society’s work is to provide help while  maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served. The Society recognizes that it must assume, also, a role of advocacy for those who are defenseless or voiceless.

Some 12 million persons are helped annually by Vincentians in the United States

Thank you to All of the FRIENDS of the POOR in Huntley:


The Society of St. Vincent DePaul at St. Mary’s hosted the 8th annual “Friends of the Poor Walk” on September 26 and was joined by St. Charles Borromeo, St. Catherine of Siena and St. Mary’s-Woodstock.   Over 128 walkers enjoyed the good weather, fellowship and satisfaction knowing they have helped others. St. Mary’s St. Vincent de Paul  would like to thank all  participants, our priests for their support, the sponsors  and the generous St. Mary’s parishioners who supported the walk with a pledge, donation or purchasing a raffle ticket. The St. Mary’s St. Vincent de Paul conference raised over $15,000, which will be used to help those in need in our own local community.


The Walk would not be possible without the time donated by our wonderful volunteers.  Thank you to  over 50 volunteers that helped with The Walk.
