The Congregation of the Mission (the Vincentians) arrived in America in 1815. This article traces their history as a mission from Rome (1815-35), a province of the Congregation (1835-88), divided into two provinces (1888-1975), and again into five provinces (from 1975). Its ministries developed from preaching and seminary teaching into other fields, such as university education and foreign missions.
