The dedicated priests and brothers of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate serve the poor and needy people in the United States and more than 60 countries worldwide. They provide food for the homeless in New Orleans, shelter for victims of natural disasters in Haiti and bring the Word of God to isolated parts of Zambia. Their ministries are a testament to the profound effect God's love has on the communities they serve.
Founded in 1816 by St. Eugene De Mazenod, the Missionary Oblates go where people's needs are greatest. Today nearly 4,000 Missionary Oblates are ministering in some of the world's most difficult missions, reaching out to serve those most in need.
