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..

A name with a Strong history

St. Vincent and His Noble Cause

Our work is inspired by the work of St. Vincent de Paul. His charity and compassion for the poor inspired millions to follow his example. Our mission is to provide kindness, dignity, and nourishment to Hamilton County families in need.

Vincent grew up in poverty and suffered great hardship, much like the people he would serve for the rest of his life. He is regarded by many faiths as the patron of all charitable causes.

Our Noblesville St. Vincent de Paul food pantry has fed almost 400,000 individuals in the last five years alone. People walk through our door for an infinite combination of unfortunate circumstances. We see their presence as an acknowledgement of need, not an admission of failure, and they are welcome regardless of background or faith. 

Even though St. Vincent passed away 400 years ago, his work was just beginning.

So is ours. We hope it always will be.
