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

Area Vincentians including St. Mary Conference participate in the National Walk for the Poor




The Society of St. Vincent DePaul at St. Mary’s hosted the 12th annual “Friends of the Poor Run/Walk” on September 28th and was joined by the St Vincent de Paul conference from St. Catherine of Siena, West Dundee. Thank you to the hearty participants who braved the wet weather and the construction to show their support of the poor and needy in our community. This year it was good to be back at St Mary’s Parish Center and the adjoining neighborhood. For added fun, three Silent Auction packages were added to the festivities.


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 Run/Walk with a registration fee, a pledge, donation or purchasing a raffle ticket. The money that St. Mary’s conference raised will be used to help those in need in our own local community.


The Run/Walk would not be possible without the time donated by our wonderful volunteers.  Thank you to the 28 plus volunteers that made the event possible.
