Caring for the poor, the lonely, and the forgotten is an integral part of the Vincentian charism and mission. In the spirit of our founder, the work that we do in communities from Alaska to Kenya provides material and spiritual aid and comfort to thousands, and it would not be possible without the help of our generous partners. With your support, our confreres can continue to perform Jesus’ work for the poor.
ASSOCIATES OF THE LITTLE COMPANY
We invite you to celebrate with us a new century of faith. Our beloved Pope Francis is the first pope elected from the “New World.” The poor and the marginalized are, as Jesus taught, still with us! And we are blessed to serve them in our third century in America.
NEEDS IN KENYA
The generous spirit of our faithful friends and supporters has brought about a flowering of faith in Kenya. Our Vincentian parishes there are thriving. But as these communities grow, their needs grow too. Once again, we ask for your help as we bring the Good News of Jesus to those we serve in Kenya.
Care of Seniors
Today, there more than 50 senior Vincentian priests and brothers living in retirement. Many of them have returned to Perryville, MO, with great fondness for the place where they spent their formative years in the seminary.
The Vincentian Prayer Ministry allows you to give the gift of prayer to your friends and loved ones. Request a prayer ministry card to celebrate special occasions, to comfort during a time of illness or to remember a family member or friend who has died. Our senior Vincentians will remember your intention in their daily prayers and Masses. Your loved one will receive a beautiful prayer card indicating that he or she is being remembered in our prayers.
A planned gift is one way you may support the Vincentians and those they serve beyond your lifetime. If you are interested in making a planned gift that may have a impact in perpetuity, our staff is ready to assist you. It is in a spirit of humility that we invite you to consider supporting our ministries and services with a special gift. Contact us to learn more about how you may contribute in prayer, sacrifice or service to support the poor we serve.

Parish Appeal, 2022-23
In 1981, the Vincentians of the Western Province went to Kenya and established a mission to serve the poor and form clergy native to the region. Today, in the new Vice-Province of Kenya, the need is still great. Our Vincentian parishes also have a strong tradition of supporting our senior priests in the U.S. who have given so much during their lifetimes. Please consider supporting our 2022-23 Parish Appeal.
Fr. Milton Ryan, C.M.
As part of our Conversations with Confreres series, Fr. Milton Ryan, C.M., pastor at Holy Trinity Parish in Dallas, Texas, tells how he came to Catholicism and the Vincentians, along with a story about a critical moment in his discernment that shows the basis for the Vincentian charism.
