“You know, it really impresses me that a simple, straight-forward,
real guy like Father Lanteri inspired so many men
to pursue holiness as Oblates and help others along the way.
It is a real testament to what can happen when we walk with the Lord.
I warmly invite you to join us in celebrating this anniversary
and supporting our mission well into the future!”

—Fr. James Walther, OMV

This year, we celebrate a milestone: 200 years of service to the Church, from a little shrine in the town of Carignano, Italy to dozens of Oblates serving in nine countries on five continents. Come celebrate with us! The Oblates of the Virgin Mary are a non-profit institution and every contribution would be tax deductible.
