“These programs have strong components of service, community, reflection, prayer and simple living that allow these young men and women to embrace the Vincentian charism and to live it in a meaningful way.”—Sister Mary Beth Kubera



Vincentian Mission Corps

VMC is a year-long volunteer program for young adults ages 21-30. Volunteers live in community in either St. Louis, Mo., or Philadelphia, Pa., and serve full-time at organizations that serve the poor and marginalized in the spirit of St. Vincent DePaul and St. Louise de Marillac.

Vincentian Service Corps West

VSC is an opportunity to dedicate one year to serve the poor and live simply in community. VSC places volunteers in schools, social service agencies, clinics and hospitals in San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles.

Colorado Vincentian Volunteers

CVV is a community of faith and action that responds to the Gospel call in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul. Young men and women, ages 22-30, serve the elderly, homeless, developmentally disabled, troubled youth and those who are poor. Their year-long program offers an opportunity for spiritual, emotional, professional growth, and a way of discerning and living one’s Christian vocation.

Vincentian Lay Missionaries

VLM are men and women who commit to serving the poor in Kenya or Ethiopia for 4-6 weeks. They work with the Daughters of Charity in both countries to build schools and libraries, and provide additional educational opportunities for children, teachers and community members.

Commissioned by the Blessed Virgin Mary, following the footsteps of St. Vincent de Paul and the Vincentian mission of prayer, service and reflection, VMY provides programs, training and materials to pastors, educators, youth ministers and collaborators to facilitate formation, prayer and service opportunities to children, youth and young adults.
