The ministerial priesthood is at the service of the people of God by teaching, divine worship and pastoral goverance. The whole Church is a priestly people. Through Baptism all the faithful share in the priesthood of Christ. Through the Sacrament of Holy Orders priests share in the universal dimensions of the mission that Christ has entrusted to the apostles.
We, who serve in the DTES, are Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Our Founder , St. Eugene de Mazenod, was inspired to serve Christ by serving the poor and most abandoned. We are an international congregation living in community of both Priests and Brothers committed by vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience. We minister in collaboration with Lay Associates.
