Saint Vincent DePaul (SVDP) Society
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is an international Catholic lay organization whose members join together to grow spiritually by providing person-to-person services to people who are in need, suffering or forgotten. The St. Juliana Conference, one of 124 conferences in the Chicago Archdiocese, assists parishioner families with basic needs such as food, clothing or financial support.
Our parish is home to a very active St. Vincent de Paul Society, whose volunteer members come together regularly to enhance their personal spiritual growth and development. An outgrowth of this spirituality is the acting out of their faith commitment to serve others, including the needy of our immediate community, the greater Chicago community and the Church throughout Chicago. Our SVDP society sponsors several food drives throughout the calendar year, such as the popular SOUPer Bowl Sunday, held every year on NFL Super Bowl Sunday.
This organization's efforts are supported through the generosity of St. Juliana parishioners; and new members are always welcome! Contact the group here to become involved.
