Central Purchasing



The Central Purchasing Agency of the Archdiocese of St. Louis helps Catholic and other religious organizations purchase quality goods and services at significant cost savings. About 95 percent of local Catholic parishes use the office’s services to save more than $1 million annually.


Central Purchasing negotiates competitive pricing on quality merchandise and services for the churches, schools, offices and agencies of the archdiocese and other religious-affiliated groups. The office also pursues new contracts and programs to benefit those it serves. Its work allows others to focus their time and resources on fulfilling their particular missions and responsibilities.

Companies interested in becoming approved vendors for the archdiocese should contact the office.
