We are a missionary Congregation….
Wherever we work, our mission is especially to those people whose condition cries out for salvation and for the hope which only Jesus Christ can fully bring. Oblate Constitutions #5
Here we find the source and inspiration of all our efforts at evangelization. For if we have received the love which restores meaning to our lives, how can we fail to share that love with others?” Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel
21st of May marks the solemn feast of the founder of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, St Eugene de Mazenod. The 29th of May celebrates the feast of the Oblate Missionary, Blessed Joseph Gerard. During these days we invite you to pray with the Missionary Oblates for vocations to the Oblate Life and Mission. www.oblates.ie
You called St. Eugene de Mazenod
to send forth missionaries
to proclaim and live the Gospel among the poor.
Increase our love, we pray,
for those who are most abandoned.
Extend your loving call
to many young people in our community
and grant them the desire
to give of themselves, their lives and talents
to the service of Jesus Christ and the Church.
May our young people answer your call
as Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate
to serve those who are in need.
This we ask through Christ Our Lord.
St Eugene. Pray for us.
Our Lady Immaculate. Pray for us.
