If I Had A Hammer

Help us provide new tools for DePaul Woodworking, a carpentry program founded by fellow Vincentian, brother Jim Donlevy.

We are stocking the shelves with the clamps, glue, sandpaper, and stains necessary to turn wood into something useful. 

Will you give a goat? Goats—the gift that makes a world of difference.

Goats are a way out of poverty, especially for women in places where they cannot work outside their home. You see that milk, cheese, and yogurt can be used to feed one’s family and to sell or trade. We have been watching goats change lives for years and years. We now have families with small herds of goats.

Will you help more families get a goat? I hope so.  I hope you’ll invite your family and friends to do the same. Goats make the world a better place. 

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.

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.
