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.”
Lent Reflections 2014
“This is the fasting I wish: releasing those bound unjustly, setting free the oppressed, sharing your bread with the hungry.” (Isaiah 58:6-7)
While we may give up chocolate, or fast food, or meat during Lent, we are reminded today that our sacrifices are aimed to purify our hearts and spirits. What we aim to give up during this Lent is selfishness and pride in order to serve our brothers and sisters.
