Testimonies from SVDP Members

My name is Jeanne Pantke, and I am a Vincentian.  I joined the St. Vincent DePaul Society in 1996.  I think of myself as the “volunteer coordinator” because I help organize clothing drives, toiletry drives, fellowships, luncheons, service projects, whatever is needed.  While I truly enjoy doing these things, talking to and visiting people (we go in pairs) who call in to our help line is closest to my heart.

Before we talk to someone, we say a prayer to the Holy Spirit, asking for guidance and understanding.  The prayer goes,

O God, someone in this house needs us.  We don’t know how we will be received, but we go as Your ambassador, however unworthy and weak we are ourselves.

Give us the power to help in the best way possible, offering what is needed, giving the proper advice, saying the right thing.  We are Your servants and the servant of anyone who needs us.

We are weak; you can make us strong.
We are tongue-tied; you can supply our words.
We lack courage; you can give us the answer.
We are useless; you can make us useful.

Above all, make us recognize You in these people and seeing You, let us love them as we love you.

This prayer puts us in the proper perspective. You might find it helpful, too!

A message from a Member of Holy Trinity’s SVDP: Jerry Doyle

The Father gave us 10 Commandments and Jesus added an 11th: Love your neighbor! Cardinal George used to say that the poor need us but that we need the poor more. Through them we are able to obey Jesus and love Him. Through the St. Vincent DePaul Society, it is easy to find the poor- they come to us. What easier way is there to love Jesus- through them? You are most welcome to come and join us - we need you too!

People’s Resource Center has served our neighbors in DuPage County through assistance programs including the food pantry, emergency assistance, clothing closet, and social services. Join us by volunteering onsite or support our center from anywhere by organizing a drive to meet our community's needs.

Holy Trinity hosts monthly praise and adoration evenings called "Movement." These evenings are typically held on the fourth Tuesdays of the month at 6:30pm. Check the parish calendar for the monthly schedule.

Volunteers of all ages are needed to help to maintain parish grounds during the summer. Many of our landscaped areas already include flowers and greenery, yet we're eager to enhance our parish gardens. By volunteering to "adopt a spot," you'll assist us in keeping weeds at bay and foster a sense of dedication to nurturing these spaces.

While we're fortunate to already have a few volunteers lending a hand, we warmly welcome all those with blessed with skill in gardening to join us in transforming our flower beds. We've divided our landscaping into three color-coded areas: Chapel, School, and Church.

If you passionate about gardening and want a fun and flexible way to contribute your time and talent to our parish, fill out the interest form and contact our parish office at 
(630)968-1366.
