The Oblates of the Virgin Mary began giving the Spiritual Exercises in the Philippines in 1994. Through these retreats and recollections, the Oblates help students, lay adults, religious, seminarians, and priests to come to a deeper and more serious relationship with God in Christ. Since the year 2000 we have given the Spiritual Exercises in nearly every major island of the Philippines, as well as South Korea, Japan, Australia, Sri Lanka, Macau, Hong Kong and etc. We have given recollections in schools, churches, retreat houses, nursing homes, and businesses. In each place, we are humbled by the privilege of being God’s instruments to bring the people of Asia to deeper communion with God.
The Oblates are here for you through your entire faith journey — it is our simple gift to you. Consider giving a gift to the Annual Fund in return, which covers shortfalls across all of our work.Give a Simple Gift
