Welcome to St. Vincent de Paul Parish, which serves Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. When first established, our Church was on the fringe of the city, but for 137 years both Chicago and our parish have grown tremendously.
As St. Vincent de Paul said — “We must love our neighbor as being made in the image of God and as an object of His love.”
December 21 Fourth Sunday of Advent
“How does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” (Luke 1:43)
Elizabeth rejoices in Christ’s presence in the womb of Mary, yet it is not an obvious presence. Christ comes to us today, more often than not hidden and not in obvious ways. Can I recognize his quiet hidden presence in my life today and give thanks?
