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.

In the Gospel, Jesus says to us,

“This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you. You are my friends if you do what I command you.”

By your gift to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, you fulfill the commandment to love one another as Jesus has loved you. God Bless!

Friends of the Poor Walk

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul will hold the Friends of the Poor Walk in  September 23, 2023. We will start and end at St. Margaret Mary Church and make our way through the neighborhood and down the bike path. The Friends of the Poor Walk is one of the major fundraisers sponsored by our local St. Vincent de Paul. Walkers collect pledge money from family members, friends, and neighbors. In the previous five walks we have raised almost $30,000. All monies raised by Saint Margaret Mary walkers go directly to our St. Vincent de Paul treasury to assist families in need in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills.

Food Pantry Sunday

Please remember to bring your non-perishable canned goods on the 2nd Sunday of the month. Thank you for your generous contributions to help those in need.

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.
