OUR MISSION

Together with our friends, collaborators and benefactors, the Vincentian priests and brothers of the Western Province bring the light of the Gospel to the world. Like St. Vincent, we see the face of Christ in the poor, the lonely and the forgotten. We fulfill our mission, nurtured by prayer and communal life, by caring for the least of God’s people wherever they may be.

CONGRATULATIONS!!
