The Church Door is a Moment of Grace

The Church Door is a Moment of Grace

April 22nd, 2016

The door to a church office probably appears dull and non-descript to passers-by but it holds moments of grace. Here in Saskatoon (St. Joseph’s) we are a downtown church. Almost daily there will be one or more homeless men pushing the doorbell asking for bus fare.

Formation and Apostolate at the Pre-Novitiate (Nairobi)

April 1st, 2016

Since the foundation of Kenya mission, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate in Kenya have been trying their best to respond to our missionary motto: “Evangelizare Pauperes misit me”. This encourages us in Kenya to receive young vocations in order to preach the Gospel message and Christian values to the poor and the most abandoned.

In the Footsteps of Saint Eugene – Day Seven

April 25th, 2016

Our pilgrimage took a different form today: we spent it traveling on various trains en route to Lourdes. Early morning found us making ‘food for the journey’ in the mission centre dining room. The Centre team provided us with sandwich fixings, water, juice, chocolate bars, fruit and, a new concept to most of us, canned Nicioise salad. The idea was to sustain us until we arrived at the Sisters’ retreat centre in the early evening, and it worked! We all enjoyed our picnic lunches on the train.

In the Footsteps of Saint Eugene – Day Six

April 25th, 2016

A true blessing of the pilgrimage has been coming to know more about Eugene’s first companions. It seems there can be such a focus on the powerful personality of Eugene that we are in danger of forgetting the men who first shared his passion, ministered alongside him and formed community with him. Without these men, the Missioners of Provence would not have come into existence as it did, nor the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Along with sharing Eugene’s story, Father Bonga has acquainted us with the important personalities who inhabited Eugene’s world.

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

He was born in 1931 in Danby, Quebec, and raised on the Southern Shore of the St. Lawrence outside of Montreal. He began his Oblate life with his novitiate year in 1948.
