Assistant Store Manager


The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Archdiocese of St. Louis (SVDP), is a grassroots, volunteer-based, direct-aid organization that brings together men and women to grow in their spirituality through service for others.  We have been serving the Greater St. Louis area since 1845.  SVDP is part of a national organization and linked by the common mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. 


The Archdiocesan Council is composed of 140+ parish-based volunteer groups called Conferences.  The Main Council operation serves as a resource and support system for these Conferences.
