We are the St Margaret Mary Conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. We are located in Algonquin, Illinois and serve the local communities of Algonquin and Lake in the Hills.

We want to say a BIG Thank You to our out-going President, Ed Majkrzak for his tireless efforts to lead our conference for almost six years, as well as to provide service to others.  He will continue his leadership in a new district role, helping parishes in our diocese without a St. Vincent DePaul Society to get a conference started.

Next, Congratulations to our newly elected President, Mark Minaglia.  He has been serving as Vice President for years, and we are excited for him to take the reins in this new role.

There are many important dates coming up, and we need help during these events from ALL our active and associate members.

What We Do

The Society 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.
