Rev. Fr. Dr. Vincent Chinwem Anuforo (July 18, 1960 – Jan 1, 2013) was an indigenous Catholic priest of Ikeduru LGA., Imo State in the Catholic Archdiocese of Owerri. He was ordained for the Congregation of the Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus in Italy. He joined the congregation in Rome in 1992, made his first profession in 1995, final profession in 1999, and was ordained a Catholic Priest in Rome in 2000.

Fr. Anuforo had a Doctorate Degree in Moral Theology, and was in the final year of his Licentiate in Philosophy in the Pontificias Università Urbaniana Roma, before his death. Apart from his studies and pastoral ministry in Rome, he was the Founder and Spiritual Director of the Mission of Solidarity and Fraternity, as well as the Spiritual Director of Amici dei Santi Angeli (the Mission of the Holy Angels).

His health problem took an unanticipated left-turn on November 30, 2012. And on January 1, 2013, Fr. Vin gave up the ghost in Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli Rome, Italy.

Eternal rest grant to him oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine on him. May his soul and all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace, Amen.
