Sent to Evangelize the Poor

We follow the call of Jesus Christ to share the good news with the poor, marginalized and abandoned in society.

Together in the Mission

We serve in multiple missions, parishes, and universities in the eastern United States of America.

Patron of Charity

St. Vincent de Paul, patron saint of charity, founded the Congregation of the Mission 400 years ago in France.

A Rich Heritage

In 2017, the Congregation of the Mission, together with the other branches of the Vincentian family, celebrate 400 years of living our mission of evangelizing the poor with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the Eastern Province, our priests’ and brothers’ legacy of service extends over 200 years, and has spanned the United States, South America and Asia, with missions in China, Panama, and Bolivia.

Vibrant in Faith

The Congregation of the Mission’s Eastern Province serves Philadelphia, New York, and small cities and towns on the east coast of the United States and missions in Panama.

Embracing all Cultures and Peoples

We believe that each person was created by God to be loved and cherished. We celebrate the diversity of cultures, peoples and languages, and especially focus on ministry to the cultural minorities in the United States.  Together, we are a people of God united in mission, and believe that the saving Gospel message of Christ was meant for all.

A Timeless Faith

We follow Jesus Christ, evangelizer of the poor, and keep St. Vincent de Paul’s missionary fire of charity burning brightly in our ministerial and pastoral services to the poor, abandoned, and marginalized. In addition to providing spiritual care to those in our communities, we advocate for social justice, after the teachings of the Catholic Church.

We are Sent to Love and Serve the Poor

“The Vincentians I have met are joyful people. I heard a call that asked me to set aside time to look more closely at living a life of service to the poor centered on the love of Christ Jesus.”

Voices from Around the Province

Landing and Soaking In

Jesus was looking for places his light could land and soak in. Isn’t that what Vincentians are trying to do?

Congregation of the Mission: Finding God in the Poor

Our mission to serve the poor both spiritually and materially. As Fr. Anthony Dosen, C.M. humbly explains in this video, “I don’t have all the answers, and how I find God is in the poor.”

How Niagara University Will Celebrate the Founding of the Congregation

What could be more appropriate than helping those who have never experienced the poverty that so many of our brothers and sisters experience and then mobilizing the community to transform the lives of children living in poverty?

Looking Back On Baptism In Our Older Years

Looking back at our own Baptism in light of how the birth of Jesus changed everything… for everyone. Perhaps it might trigger some thoughts about your own Baptism.
