Helping our Neighbors in need
Expanding the mission
The Diocese of Joliet encompasses seven Illinois counties, DuPage, Will, Kankakee, Iroquois, Ford, Kendall and Grundy. We have local Conferences in DuPage, Will, Kankakee, Grundy and Kendall counties.
The Joliet Diocesan Council operates a SVDP1 senior housing project, a car program and six Thrift stores. The Joliet Diocesan Council comprises over 35 local parish Conferences with 1500 members. Several Conferences operate Food pantries and others provide PADS housing in association with DuPage PADS association or the Will County PADS association. Our members continually strive to carry on the work begun when the Blessed Frederic and his friends formed their first conference in France over 175 years ago.
