Knights of Columbus
Wheel of Meat Raffle

Saturday, May 19th
6:30-10:30PM in the Great Hall

The Knights of Columbus help charities Coats for Kids, Food for Families, The Global Wheelchair Mission, Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, Misericordia and many others. We want to raise monies that directly benefit our parish ministries. The method we chose to raise funds is an event called the Wheel of Meat Raffle. To raise money to purchase the meat, we are on the last of the three raffle square boards which are available after every Mass in the lower level. $20 raffle with 100 Squares will raise $2000 each. We will give away $500 with each raffle, one grand prize winner $250, two prize winners $125.  This raffle is open to all. Please help the Knights with your participation.  If you need more information or would like to find out how you can help please contact the Wheel of Meat Chair John Claussen jclaussen@johnclaussen.com or the Wheel of Meat Co-Chair Jim Turek jturek1388@aol.com.

St. Vincent de Paul Collection Truck

Weekend of June 2/3

The St. Vincent de Paul truck will be in our parking lot the weekend of June 2nd and June 3rd for our Clothing Drive!!  We will accept:

  • Clothing, shoes, linens and books in good or bad condition.  Unusable clothing, shoes, linens and even books generate income for the needy because they are sold for rags or in bulk. 
  • No baby equipment such as cribs, walkers, strollers, playpens, etc.  ALL BABY CLOTHES ACCEPTED!
  • Small housewares and electronics – dishes, glassware, utensils, toasters, blenders, coffee makers, radios, cd players etc. SORRY NO TELEVISIONS.

For furniture and large item donations please call 630-231-4658 to schedule a home pickup at a later date or email us at – saintvincentdonate@gmail.com.  Your donations go to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shops where much of your donations are given away free to needy families in the community.  Some are sold at reasonable prices at the thrift shops so that needy families can shop with dignity.  “Proceeds” from the thrift shops go into a general assistance fund where St. Vincent de Paul Conferences at the churches help families with rent, mortgage or utility assistance.
