OMG OMI: Always Close to the People – Invitation
“We will always be close to the people with whom we work, taking into account their values and aspirations.” Oblate Constitution 8
Often in conversations with new parishioners at our St. Patrick parish in Hamilton, ON, after asking what attracted them to this faith community, they would say, “You guys are just different!” I believe that the “difference” is expressed by our attitude and witness formed by the Oblate charism.
You might wonder what the Oblate charism is… Maybe you heard about the Oblates or our founder; St. Eugene de Mazenod. Maybe you are a member of the parish served by the Oblates. The OMI Lacombe Canada Vocation Team would like to invite you to get to know more about the Oblates, St. Eugene and the Oblate spirituality. It’s open to everyone, men and women, regardless of age, experience of life, or the season of life you’re currently living.
We invite you to a virtual gathering, “OMG OMI: Always Close to the People” on January 25th, 2023, at 7:00pm Eastern Time. We will share with you about the beginnings of the Oblates, about the pillars of the Oblate spirituality and how it’s being lived by the ordinary, lay people in ordinary ways. Our hope is to inspire you to embrace an Oblate way of life, in your circumstances and reality.

We are looking forward to sharing with you what have inspired and changed many lives!
