There were 127 individuals who received free groceries, which fed 330 family members. Through the generosity of many individuals, St Vincent de Paul was able to sponsor three food trucks this year. The number of household members who benefited from the free groceries was 1,300. In addition, 560 meals were provided through the Aryl Dailey Free Community Lunch Program. We are extremely grateful to all who provide funds, donate their time and/or provide necessary supplies and materials. You have touched many lives within our community! God’s Blessing to all of you! Mary Koppi, Society of St Vincent de Paul

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
