The Annual Gala

Web Group Full Cropped

For over a decade, the Oblates of the Virgin Mary have hosted a Seminarian Scholarship Fund Dinner and Auction at St. Clement’s Shrine in Boston to raise awareness of the Oblate mission, share the vision of our Congregation, build community among our friends and benefactors, and invite financial support for the formation of our seminarians who will one day minister as priests or brothers. Each year, the Oblates also honor key individuals whose friendship and support has deeply enriched our members. 

Now in 2017, the new chapter of our celebration has begun! Our first gala, the 200th Anniversary Gala, in celebration of the first two centuries of Oblate ministry around the world, was held on May 6, 2017. We took the festivities to a larger venue, the Seaport Hotel, and it turned out to be just as enjoyable an evening, surrounded by 300 of our friends and supporters. We hope to see you in 2018 for our next Gala of celebration!

“With the creation of a seminarian scholarship fund, we are able to provide a way of financially help those young men who otherwise would be unable to attend the seminary.” — Fr. Dave Nicgorski, OMV, Rector Major
