The Vincentians in East Africa
Why are we Vincentians here in East Africa?
Because we believe that if Vincent DePaul were alive today, this is one place where he would want us to be. Today, Vincent would be walking the streets of Nairobi, Kampala and Dar-es-Salaam once again discovering the image of Christ in the poor. Vincent too would be visiting villages from as far north as Moyale, Kenya to as far south as Mbinga, Tanzania inviting young East African men to join him in his work of evangelization of the poor.
Finally, we want to help answer the challenge issued by the African Synod in 1994: “There is fundamental need for prophets to arise and speak in the name of God and in the name of the hope for the creation of new identity. Africa has need of holy prophets.”
