OMI Lacombe Canada | Oblates of Mary Immaculate
OMI Lacombe Canada was constituted as a province on December 8, 2003. We were founded with the intention of revisioning our Mission and Ministry, Community Life, Leadership and Lay Association.
Four particular dimensions underlie the establishment of the OMI Lacombe Canada Province:
- Refocusing our mission towards the poor and the most abandoned,
- Emphasising strongly on local community,
- Preparation effective leadership at both the local and the province levels, and
- Providing for the more active presence and life of associates with the community
The Missionary Oblates were founded in 1816 by Saint Eugene de Mazenod
. Our motto is: "He has sent me to bring the Good News to the poor [...]. The Good News is proclaimed to the poor" (Luke 4:18; Matthew 11:5).
We are one of over sixty provinces and delegations within the worldwide Roman Catholic congregation
of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.
