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, Mongolia, India, Papua New Guinea, and East Timor. 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.
