Meet The Oblates

Each of us was led to our vocation by the Holy Spirit working through the high point of creation: A person who joyfully directed us to our community.

With almost 150 Oblates of St. Francis de Sales in the Wilmington-Philadelphia Province, we have an array of personalities, stories, talents, and interests.   We are proud of our diverse ministries in 13 arch/dioceses from Boston, MA, to Port au Prince, Haiti and Lansing, MI, to the principality of Monaco.  Whether in schools, parishes, hospitals, rehab centers, or social agencies in the inner city, we work to live Jesus with those we work and serve.  

We welcome you to meet a few of us in these profiles.  And, someday, we hope to meet you. 

Peace be with you!
