Vincentian International Mission Services continues the ministry of St. Vincent dePaul who saw the face of Christ in people living in poverty, living on the margins, people whom the world considers unimportant.
Thanks to generous donor-partners, VIMS helps fuel the ministry of Vincentian priests and brothers serving in very poor communities where food, medicine, education, housing, clean water and so much more are in short supply.

More than 200 years ago we moved here and built this motherhouse to advance the mission of St. Vincent dePaul.
God is calling us to renew it and ourselves to do even more. We hope you will join us.
St. Vincent knew priests, in order to serve God’s people well, needed deep faith, a solid education, and deep love for people living in poverty. Vincentian seminaries are essential if we want good priests.

Vincentian International Mission Services (VIMS) helps fuel the growth and development of the Congregation of the Mission especially in countries where resources are few and progress is difficult. We also raise funds for special projects of the Superior General so that the mission of St. Vincent dePaul thrives in the 21st century.
