Support the Anniversary Appeal

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of our founding and the 40th anniversary of our ministry in North America, the Oblates call on our friends to help us better answer God’s call, serve God’s people, and honor lives of service. Our Anniversary Appeal is raising funds to accommodate much-needed upgrades to our facilities and sustain and expand our ministries.

Your generosity is a vote of confidence in our efforts to educate, form and train young men called to the priesthood and religious life. In turn, they give their lives to generously serving God’s people by living the Church’s message of faith, hope and love.

Philippine Mission Fund

In 1997 the Oblates established the Oblates of the Virgin Mary Formation Center in the Archdiocese of Cebu, The Philippines. In February 2002, the Mary, Mother of Mercy Chapel was dedicated. In order to serve Catholics throughout the Philippines, a seminary for the training and formation of Oblates was established where they currently have twelve native men studying for the priesthood.
