How You Can Help

Yes, the women and men who generously support us Oblates are our friends.  What's more, they are our partners in ministry, for they play a central role in helping us to advance the sacred mission entrusted to us: To preach the Gospel with gentleness and humility in the example of St. Francis de Sales.  Please consider joining this elite fleet of committed Christians whose kindness provides mercy to those in need.  

Your on-line gift can help the poor and needy, provide assistance for a Catholic school student from an economically challenged family, support an Oblate seminarian, or aid a retired or infirm priest or brother.

After you have ensured that your loved ones will benefit from your life's work, we ask you to consider remembering the Oblates and our mission in your will.  Learn how your estate can help your legacy live  for years.

Many of our priests and brothers worked in schools where students learned for little to no expense, thanks to the hard work of their Oblate teachers, who received little compensation.  Please consider supporting a seniorship, a scholarship in reverse.
