Who are we?
A Roman Catholic community of priests and brothers founded by St. Vincent de Paul to evangelize the poor and educate clergy.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.”
Vincentian Brothers are dedicated men and authentic missionaries. As Brothers, they participate in the mission of Christ, Church ministries, and advance the Vincentian charism. Although not clerics with sacramental duties, Brothers are full members of the Congregation, involved in ministries of direct service to the poor, as well as contributing to advance the mission of the Congregation.
What is the mission?
Vincentians are pastors, parish priests, college chaplains and professors, and pastoral ministers.
We preach parish missions and
engage in lay formation. Our pastoral ministry is with underserved, multicultural communities.
Where are we Serving?
We Vincentians, in the USA, belong to the provinces of New England, the East, and the West,
with over 250 priests and brothers, and serve in missions we founded in Panama and Kenya.
