your support makes a lasting impact

for the poor in Kenya, our Senior Priests and Brothers, and for Vincentian Vocations

Our Vincentian parishes have a strong tradition of supporting the work of our priests and brothers in the Vice-Province of Kenya, where help is needed more than ever. They also have prioritized supporting our senior priests in the U.S. who have given so much during their lifetimes and remain active in ministry, even in retirement. The 2023-24 Parish Appeal will also support our newly redesigned Vocation program, exemplified by the recently dedicated Vincentian Mission House in St. Louis. Please consider supporting our 2023-24 Parish Appeal.

St. Louise de Marillac Program

The current drought, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and harsh economic conditions in East Africa have plunged 4.2 million of Kenya’s poor into even more desperate impoverishment.

The work of the Vincentians in the Vice-Province of Kenya is more crucial than ever. The St. Louise de Marillac program provides needed food, water, and supplies to the most vulnerable.

This year’s Vincentian Parish Appeal will also support

  • A nursery school in the under-served Kamulu community
  • Water tanks, uniforms, and school materials for the Kinuri Early Childhood Center at the Vincent de Paul Parish at Giathugu




Bless Those who Bless You

Senior Vincentian priests and brothers have devoted their lives to working with the poor, preaching the Gospel, and teaching in seminaries. Today in the Congregation of the Mission Western Province, more than 50 senior confreres are in need of support and care, 30 of them in the Apostle of Charity Residence at St. Mary’s of the Barrens in Perryville, MO.

Even in “retirement,” these men remain active members of the community, conducting missions, celebrating Mass, taking part in prayer ministry, producing scholarly work, and much more.

Support for Vincentian Vocations

For 400 years, Vincentian priests and brothers have cared for the poor and abandoned, have served as educators, and have spread the gospel according to the charism of their founder, St. Vincent de Paul.

Today, the Western Province has revitalized its recruitment and formation program to identify and educate the Vincentians who will continue this important work. Your support will help provide for recruitment of new vocations, as well as coursework, education materials, housing
expenses, and more.

Please help us ensure that St. Vincent’s vision and charism endures for years to come.
