The three pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. And we have a way for you to give alms this Lent!
Our St. Marys and Christ the Teacher community has set a goal to raise $7,500 this Lent to help our neighbors who are struggling during this time. This amount will help families who are facing eviction be able to stay in their homes.
Will you join us in helping our neighbors in need? Make an online donation or mail your check to: Society of St. Vincent de Paul 302 Fisk Ave. Dekalb, IL 60115
* Please make checks payable to Society of St. Vincent de Paul
