200th Anniversary Gala
“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
