Zambia: Nutritional and medical programs are almost non-existent in some of the poorest regions of Zambia. Infants are at the greatest risk. The Oblates have created a program in which Zambian infants are provided milk every day to improve their chances of survival. Read more about the Oblates’ ministries in the Zambia.   Read More

Bolivia: For more than 50 years, Radio Pio XII has been broadcasting in support of miners who work in slave-like conditions high in the Andes Mountains of Bolivia. The station speaks out against corruption by the government, mining companies and labor unions. Radio Pio XII has been damaged by bombs many times through the years, and several Oblates have survived assassination attempts because of their outspoken support of human rights for Bolivia’s poor.

Haiti: The Oblates created Pope John Paul II Institution in the town of Ouanaminthe for refugee children who lost their homes in the earthquake of January 2010. They transformed the parish hall at Notre Dame de l’ Assomption parish into a school that can accommodate up to 200 children. The Oblates hope to build 12 new classrooms this year in order to educate even more refugee children.

Mexico: The Missionary Oblates have been ministering in northern Mexico since 1971. The border mission is complex both culturally and socially, and is truly a work among the poor and abandoned. The Oblates in this region, called La Morita, work tirelessly for the people of their communities.  Read More

Pakistan: The Oblate missionaries of the Pakistan Delegation were founded in 1973. The primary Oblate ministries in Pakistan include developing Christian communities, promoting education and fostering vocations.

China: The Oblates in China collaborate with an organization called China Little Flower, helping to extend the love of Christ to abandoned disabled children. Every week a group of children come to the Oblate residence where they play games and watch movies while they learn about the Christian faith.

United States: The Oblates’ work in the United States began over 150 years ago. One of their earliest missions was in Texas in the 1840s. These Oblates were commonly referred to as the “Cavalry of Christ” as they rode on horseback through the vast Rio Grande region proclaiming the Gospel. The Oblates’ presence in the in United States grew quickly. Read more about the Oblates’ ministries in the United States.  Read More 

Ireland: The Oblates of the Anglo-Irish Province coordinate a five-day pilgrimage to Lourdes each September for the elderly, sick and homebound people of Edinburgh, Dublin, Liverpool, Anglesey and the island of Jersey. The Oblates were the first group to bring pilgrims from Ireland to Lourdes. They’ve continued the tradition every year since 1883, with the exception of wartime when travel was impossible.

Wales: The Oblates reach out to troubled youth through the Oblate Summer Adventure Camp, hosted in the Snowdonia Mountains of North Wales. The camp brings together groups of kids from diverse backgrounds, many of whom face personal challenges. The annual camp began in August of 2010 for the children of Oblate parishes in various cities throughout Ireland, Wales, England and Scotland.
