To become an Oblate

 3 motives to becoming an Oblate

  • To answer the call to consecrated life, out of love for others, while remaining in your own milieu, keeping your job and your commitments;
  • To have a missionary spirit;
  • To be supported by a group recognized as a secular institute by the Church.

5 stepping stones to becoming an Oblate

  • Like Mary, allow yourself to be transformed by the Holy Spirit to then go out to transform the world in a spirit of service;
  • Strive to live the 5-5-5;
  • Contact some Oblates;
  • Receive a formation conducive to a Christian commitment at the heart of the world while remaining in your milieu.
