Letter From the Superior General for the Feast of St. Eugene De Mazenod

May 19th, 2022

“We are pilgrims, journeying with vibrant hope and a deep communion”

Dear Brother Oblates, and all our Sisters, Brothers, and Young People who live the Oblate charism,

The life and charism of St. Eugene continue to inspire many thousands of men, women, and young people to seek holiness and to live as missionaries throughout the world. In celebrating the Solemnity of St. Eugene, let us give thanks for the grace of the Oblate charism, a genuine expression of the Gospel.  On our feast day, Oblates in difficult circumstances are very present in our hearts and on our minds.  We remember in prayer the Oblates and people of Ukraine who are suffering so much from the war provoked by Russia.  I want to thank all who have given very generously to help Ukraine, and also for the relief work being done directly and constantly by the Oblates of Poland. 

In this letter for our Founder’s feast day, I would like to call your attention to four important upcoming events of the Congregation.  The first of these events to take place is the “Week of Prayer for Oblate Vocations” from the Founder’s feast day, May 21st, to the feast of Blessed Joseph Gerard, May 29th.  Resources for this week of prayer have been prepared by the Internal Formation Committee of the Central Government.  They are available in three languages and can be downloaded from the OMI website.
