Oblates 200th Anniversary Gala

This year the Oblates of the Virgin Mary had the happy coincidence of celebrating the 200th Anniversary of our founding and the 40th Anniversary of presence in the United States just as our annual event in support of the seminary fund had outgrown our own quaint facilities. On May 6th, we held our first ever Gala event at the Seaport Hotel.

It was a joyful celebration of our history, and an inspiring celebration of hope for our future.

Thank you for . . .

The presence shared,
The prayers shared,
The stories shared,
The smiles shared,
The time shared,
The talent shared,
The treasure shared,

Your generosity and participation are the truest testimony that the work begun by our founder, Venerable Bruno Lanteri, to profoundly touch and transform the lives of individuals continues today.

Now we go forward together. What began with one man’s determination, “Nunc Coepi – Now I Begin” we now echo with many voices,

Let Us Begin!
