It Is Our 404th Anniversary

In honor of this, our 404th anniversary, would you consider giving a small gift?  How small? $4.04. 

Our goal is  to have 404 of our friends pitch-in so that we can provide shoes and socks (Does it get anymore basic than that?) to school children, construction workers, medical workers and others in some of our poorest missions. 404 years seems something worth celebrating, don’t you think? 

A Strong Year End

As we move on to 2021, we take a moment to reflect on our 2020 projects. In the second half of the year, thanks to generous supporters, we sent about $300,000 to Vincentians in the poorest provinces of the Congregation. They used these funds to secure and distribute food, meals, face masks, hand sanitizer, study kits for students and even rental and housing assistance. Thank you. Thank you for all of your help in 2020. Thank you for your support, your prayers and your gifts.

Hurricane Eta Relief Fund in Honduras

Vincentians have been serving in Honduras since 1910. We are on the scene. This is our home.  The people who are suffering the effects of Hurricane Eta are our neighbors, parishioners, and friends. We were here before the hurricane hit and we will continue to serve here for many, many more years. Please help.  

Virus Relief: When Did We See You?

The virus hit very hard in countries where Vincentians serve. Food is harder to find and much more expensive. Medical treatment is severely limited. Jobs have vanished. 

Vincentians are responding. Will you help us provide what our brothers and sisters need? We have the systems in place to meet the needs. We need your help to provide food and clean water, soap and masks.

A Strong Year End – 2020 Recap

A Strong Year End – 2020 Recap

Over the last 5 months, Vincentian priests, brothers, and their collaborators in the poorest provinces of the Congregation used financial resources provided by VIMS donors and the Curia (headquarters) of the Congregation to respond to the crises caused by COVID-19. In...

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.

Vincentians are agents of change. In his day, St. Vincent inspired clergy and lay people, royalty and peasants to serve those neglected by society. We continue his ministry today. Join us in making the world holier, kinder, more productive, in short, more the way God wants it.
