Oblate Mission in Pakistan
Several Oblates work in the formation of scholastics at the Karachi Scholasticate and share their talents in teaching assignments, spiritual direction and retreats. Oblates are actively involved in formation at the philosophy level where individuals study prior to entering the scholasticate. Their presence has strengthened the Oblate community and Catholic faith.

Oblate Mission in Sri Lanka
“Anpaham Orphanage” (A Home of Love) was started by the Oblates of the Jaffna Province in 1987. Most of the children are direct victims of war or the 2004 tsunami. These poor children of God are being sheltered, fed, educated, provided with medicines, clothing and love, formed to be living with hope for their future and given some awareness of their human dignity.
Oblate Mission in India
The Oblate Juniorate in India is a minor seminary that invites specially selected students for a one-year “come and see” vocation discernment as Oblate candidates. Funds are required for food, educational materials and formators. These men are the future missionaries of the Oblate charism, willing to be assigned to various ministry works anywhere in the world, including Canada. The Oblate Ashram christened Aanmodaya (awakening to the divine self within) was established in 1990. It provides a sacred space where people of all walks of life irrespective of creed, nationality, religion, gender, language or caste can come to experience the Divine and/or the silence of nature, or just to rest their tired limbs to regain strength for their continued pilgrimage of life.
