The Oblates of Mary Immaculate are a clerical Congregation of pontifical right. We come come together in apostolic communities of priests and Brothers, united to God by the vows of religion. Cooperating with the Saviour and imitating his example, we commit ourselves principally to evangelizing the poor. We are men "set apart for the Gospel" (Rom 1: 1), men ready to leave everything to be disciples of Jesus Christ.

As priests and Brothers, we have complementary responsibilities in evangelizing. We spare no effort to awaken or reawaken the faith in the people to whom we are sent, and we help them to discover "who Christ is". Our mission is to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to seek it before all else (cf. Mt 6 : 33). We fulfill this mission in community; and our communities are a sign that, in Jesus, God is everything for us. Growing together in faith, hope and love, we commit ourselves to be a leaven of the Beatitudes at the heart of the world.
