Help for the SVDP Thrift Store

After almost 14 years and 297,000 miles, our 1990 “U Haul” truck is no longer in working condition. To continue with our mission in the 39th St. community, we purchased a “new” truck—a 2005 “U-Haul” for $7200. As a result, our cash reserves are seriously depleted.

We welcome your help in the form of  both prayers and/or monetary donations.

Please send your prayers heavenward and your tax deductible check to St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, 3922 Troost, Kansas City, MO 64110. We are a 501C3 organization.

Stewardship Education

Everyone has a different story about why they are called to be a Christian steward... click on the links below to read a few from our parishioners.

"That does not sound like you."

"It's just what we do for family."

"It started with a valentine."

"God is the main Head Coach."

"Experience that awesome feeling that comes with being part of something bigger than ourselve.s"

"It is not an obligation to us. It is a privilege."

"How shall we make a return to the Lord for all the good He has done for us?"

"God prepared this house for us."

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait single moment before starting to change the world.”

"A Volleyball Match, a Pocket Knife and a T-shirt."
