United States Formation

us_provinceThere are four Oblate houses of formation in the United States Province:

  • Pre-Novitiates in Buffalo, New York and Tijuana, Mexico
  • A Novitiate in Godfrey, Illinois
  • The Scholasticate (Oblate School of Theology) in San Antonio, Texas
  • The House of Studies in Makeni, Zambia

The future of the Missionary Oblates is in the hands – and hearts – of our seminarians.

They know the road ahead will not be an easy one – becoming an Oblate priest or brother requires years of study, prayer, discernment, and community living. It also requires a love for the poor and a selfless commitment to helping others.
