Preparing for the 200th Year Celebration of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate
On January 25, 2016, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate will be celebrating 200 years of its foundation. St. Eugene de Mazenod was inspired by God to begin a congregation of men to be missionaries of the world, serving in a particular way the needs of the poor and most abandoned. St. Ferdinand’s Church for decades has been blessed in having our congregation pastor and lead God’s people; many Oblate priests and brothers have come and touched lives of St. Ferdinand’s the community and beyond. How can we show our heartfelt appreciation and mark in a special way the presence of the Oblate charism within our community?
Rev. Louis Lougen, O.M.I., Superior General of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, has asked all Oblates to celebrate this great jubilee in all places we minister and making sure the images of St. Eugene de Mazenod be present at every location. We invite the community to join in celebrating this special event by making a donation towards purchasing a statue of St. Eugene de Mazenod and the Immaculate Conception. These statues, that we hope arrive on time, would be blessed the weekend of January 23rd & 24th and enthroned into the niches at the entrance of the church on January 25th (Feast of St. Paul), actual date the Oblates were founded. If any of you are interested in donating towards this special cause, please make your donation in separate envelope and make a clear notation that your contribution is for the Oblate Statues. We thank you for your generosity!
