In his first letter to the early Christians, John shares the joyful news that “we are God’s children now.” And as such, we are known by the love we have for one another. Through your yearly offerings, the priests and brothers of the Congregation of the Mission continue their ministry of selfless giving to neighbors in need across the U.S. and in Kenya.

Your sacrificial gift will support our Vincentians as they continue their ministries to enrich the spiritual and material poverty of God’s people.

Your generosity today will provide needed assistance for:

  • 2,000 Kenyan families receiving food, tuition aid, and urgent medical care
  • 33 seminarians seeking tuition assistance and other support for formation
  • 100 parish missions
  • 60 senior priests and brothers receiving care
  • thousands of parishioners and other neighbors hearing the Good News of God’s love “in truth and in deed” through his son, Jesus

So, our vocation is to go, not just to one parish, not just to one diocese, but all over the world; and do what? To set people’s hearts on fire, to do what the Son of God did. He came to set the world on fire in order to inflame it with His love.”

– St. Vincent de Paul

I am grateful for my life as a senior priest
at St. Mary’s of the Barrens in Perryville, Missouri, and to so many generous friends of the Vincentians supporting our needs. I find great companionships with confreres who have labored long and hard, and have many stories to share. And,
I have a lot of time to pray.”

– Rev. Robert Wood, C.M.
