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

April 19 Holy Saturday

“Something strange is happening — there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh.” (from an ancient homily on Holy Saturday)

Spend some time today reflecting on the past 40 days of Lent and give thanks for what Christ has done for you. After reading this, turn off the electronics and silently listen for God.
