On January 25 we celebrate the Foundation of the Congregation of the Mission by St. Vincent de Paul. In the USA, the Congregation is made up of the provinces of New England, the East, and the West, with over 250 priests and brothers. They also serve in missions they founded in Panama and Kenya.
Click on the image below to see some brief videos– six newly-ordained or soon-to-be-ordained Vincentians talk about their vocations and the joy that they look forward to finding, in serving people who are living in poverty.
