How Do Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the Right to Life March Fit In?

January 17th, 2020

Three Examples of Oblate Ecumenism during the Jan. 18-25, 2020 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

How Do Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the Right to Life March Fit In?

by Harry Winter, O.M.I.

Oblate School of Theology, San Antonio, TX

Oblate School of Theology’s commitment to Christian Unity continues to grow.  On Jan. 24, at 7 pm, the Sankofa Institute (for African American Pastoral Leadership) will lead a Christian Unity Service.  The guest preacher will be Dr. Jerry W. Dailey, from Macedonia Baptist Church, San Antonio, TX.

White Earth, MN

Although there will be no explicit actions for ecumenism in our six parishes of White Earth during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, due to the temporary absence of the Protestant minister who works with the Oblates, there continues to be great ecumenical activity. During last November, the Ojibwa community in Waubun held an autumn feast and fun day.  United Church of Christ Pastor Anna Larson and Fr. John Cox, O.M.I. offered craft activities for the children.

When the Oblate national administration met at White Earth from Sept. 16-19,  2019, they saw that some of our main programs providing assistance (educational, social welfare, drug rehabilitation, employment opportunities and job training) require input from all the Christian Churches on the reservation.  No one Church has the resources alone.  Read the full article at OMIUSA.org.
