A Return to Zimbabwe Ronan writes about the Oblate Missionary Experience
LONDON – Johannesburg, Johannesburg – Bulawayo.
A Warm Welcome
Our Incredible Volunteers
The Oblate Missionary Experience is designed primarily to allow people to experience life as a missionary.
We live together, eat together, work and pray together. It is humbling, at times it is challenging, but above all it is a privilege. To play a part in the lives of the incredible boys and girls who call SJC home, is a privilege. To be a witness to the suffering endured by countless children in Zimbabwe, while heartbreaking, is a privilege. To live out the Oblate charism, “He sent me to bring the Good News to the poor”, is a privilege.
Or, in the words of St Eugene de Mazenod,
“You are God’s children, the brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ, heirs to his eternal kingdom, chosen portion of his inheritance; you are, in the words of St. Peter, a holy nation, you are kings, you are priests, you are in some way gods, You are gods, children of the Most High.”
