The SVdP Chicago Council recently honored Emmet Cassidy, from the St. Joseph Conference in Homewood, Illinois, for his 50 years as a Vincentian.
In that time Emmett has helped several thousand people who were hungry, homeless, in need of clothing, and challenged by addictions.
In November, Harry Ohde, Volunteer President/CEO of the Chicago Council, presented Emmet with a plaque recognizing his legacy as a Vincentian and a statue set depicting St. Vincent.
The District XII Council, represented by Mike Lamb, also presented Emmet with the Society’s 175th anniversary medallion and accompanying book to commemorate Emmet’s impact in the South Suburbs. Emmet recently took on the role as President Emeritus and remains active and engaged in helping neighbors in need with the next generation of Vincentians in his Conference.”
Congratulations Emmett and God Bless You for 50 Years of being an active Vincentian with the St. Vincent de Paul Chicago Council and St. Joseph Conference.
