Acting upon a need
Serving our community for almost 35 years.
When Father James Bates, pastor of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church from 1985 to 2002, arrived in Noblesville in 1985, St. Vincent de Paul Society was using his garage for storage space. At that time, what would later become a thrift store and food pantry, was an on-site outreach of the parish.
“We couldn’t move and leave needy people just sitting outside,” Father Bates said. “If the parish was going to get a new home, they should get one, too. ”
The new St. Vincent de Paul building was dedicated on the same day that the new parish church was dedicated. That 2,800 square-foot church building served the area for more than 20 years, but more space was needed.
In 2013, thanks to major donors who provided the funds, our current building was purchased and renovated to serve as a the new location for the resale shop and food pantry. When the new non-denominational Thomas & Sondra Sheehan Center opened on Sept. 9th that year, 26 people were standing in line for assistance..
