I have just finished a counselling session with a couple. I decided to take this opportunity to share a bit more about the ministry I am involved in.

OUR PEOPLE

Armelle and Louis Molin

Armelle and Louis Molin

We have been in contact with the Oblates since 1973. In 1986, we participated in a workshop on “Personality and Human Relations” directed by Father Lomer Laplante O.M.I. Through personal reflection and sharing with the other members of the group, we discovered a profound and nearly urgent desire to live a “missionary experience“ which led us to our first trip to Bolivia in 1987. We remained in Bolivia during 10 out of 15 years, because we also wanted to spend time with our family in Canada.

John is friendly, talkative, colorful and full of stories. He wears his Oblate identity with a sense of pride and fills the room with his warm smile. His conversation is equally expressive in his facial expressions as in his spirited words.

Robert Filion, OMI
