OMV Provincial Assembly
Many of you may be wondering what on earth I am doing these days in Boston. Asides from experiencing freezing temperatures :-) :-) :-) I am gathered here with some of my Oblate brothers of my province as well as with the Rector Major of the whole congregation. We are gathered here to provide input to the precapitular commission for the General chapter of the Congregation of the Oblates what will take place in France in the month of July. This chapter will elect a new Rector Major and will provide a vision and plan for the congregation for the next 6 years. The provincial assembly will also provide a vision for our province that is in harmony with the vision of the whole congregation. It is an important period of prayer, reflection, discernment, and decision making. So please pray for us as we begin tonight the whole process that will last till the late hours of Sunday January the 18th. I should be back in the Parish on the 19th of this month. Blessings to all of you!
