The General Committee of the Oblate Brothers met at the General House in Rome from November 9 to 14, 2018.

The Committee welcomed the positive response given by the Oblate units around the world for the committee’s proposal for community prayer on the occasion of the bicentenary of the first Rule. It hopes that this new tradition will continue in the future as well.

It was in this enthusiasm that the committee experienced its meeting as a true spiritual journey.

Thanks to the visit to a community of Focalari in the outskirts of Rome, the contribution of Sandra Prather (layman of the OMI Lacombe Province), and the presence and witness of Sr. Yulia Venglovska (Misioneras Oblatas de María Inmaculada), the committee rediscovered that every vocation has its source in baptism and that it is through baptism we receive our mission. In order to recover this identity of our religious vocation, the committee recommended meditation on the document “Identity and Mission of the Religious Brother in the Church”.
