Mission in Panama

The Vincentian mission in Panama began with the construction of the Panama Canal in 1914, where Vincentians ministered to those working on the Canal in the “canal zone.” After a mission house in Balboa was established, the ministry of Vincentians in Panama went beyond just English-speakers or Canal Workers, but deeper into Panama and for native Panamanians. Vincentians serve all over Panama: Bocas del Toro, Colon, Concepcion, David, Puerto Armuelles, and the indigenous peoples in Soloy. In 2014, they celebrated 100 years of service in the region. 

Since 1914, the Vincentians of the Eastern Province have ministered by providing sacramental ministry, popular missions, lay formation, and the formation of missionaries.
