The Oblate Central Government, in fulfilling a mandate from the 36th General Chapter, has organised a second Lay Association Congress.
The first Congress was held in Aix-en-Provence 25 years ago.
This Congress, to be called “Living as Oblate People”, is a Congress for all people associated with ordained Oblates and the Oblate Mission. It will be accessible to everybody online.
The event aims to share locally, regionally, and internationally the depth and variety of ways of connecting as a big family of lay Oblate associations all influenced by St Eugene de Mazenod.
Pauline Thomas, Gerard Bennett and Kirk Jacob with Fr Brian Maher OMI have been asked by the Provincial to be delegates for the preparation of the Congress, which because of the pandemic will take place virtually.
It is hoped that the main Congress in 2022, with participants attending in person, will be held in Germany.
As more information becomes available I will keep you informed of the progress of the Congress preparations, as it is my privilege to be involved with the Central Working Team.
