Vincentian Mission Corps
The mission of the Vincentian Mission Corps is to provide young adults with an experience of living in community and working with the poor in the spirit of St. Vincent DePaul and St. Louise de Marillac. It is our goal that these young adults, as they respond to the call of the Gospel by working, praying, and living in the Vincentian spirit, will develop a consuming commitment to improving the lives of the poor and marginalized in our society.
Vincentian Mission Corps volunteers live in community in the city of St. Louis for ten and one-half months, beginning each year in August and ending in June. Each volunteer works with the poor and marginalized at a specific work site. Volunteers live simply, sharing with one another, and growing as people of faith.
