St Eugene de Mazenod
Founder of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate
Who was St Eugene?
At Eugene de Mazenod’s canonisation in December 1995, St. John Paul II said of him:
“His influence is not limited to the age in which he lived but continues its effect on our time…
What Saint Eugene wanted to achieve was that, in Christ, each individual could become a fully complete person, an authentic Christian, a credible saint.
The Church gives us this great Bishop and Founder of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate as an example of heroic faith, hope and charity”.

Outgoing Superior General message
Photo From Vatican News
This article was originally published at Vatican News on September 28th
As the Oblates of Mary Immaculate hold their General Chapter, Fr. Louis Lougen, the outgoing OMI Superior General, praises the work of Oblates across the globe and says his successor needs to be a man of hope and prayer to face the difficulties of the mission.
Missionaries close to the people
In an interview with Vatican News, Fr. Lougen reflected on his 12 years of service and explored the challenges and opportunities that face Oblates throughout the world.
As Superior General, the 70-year-old American-born priest—who celebrated his birthday on Wednesday—has visited around 68 countries where OMI missionaries are present, calling the chance to see the men in the missions a “great privilege and joy.”

Letter of the Superior General on the 197th Anniversary of the Papal Approbation of the Constitutions and Rules
Dear fellow pilgrims, Oblates and members of our charismatic family,
The months of January and February are marked by two important dates for our family: the beginning of the missionary community in Aix on January 25, 1816, and the pontifical approval of our Constitutions and Rules (CCRR) on February 17, ten years later. These days we are holding our first plenary session in which the Central Government and all the directors of the general services have begun to try to put into practice the proposals of our last General Chapter. Listening and reflecting on our origins, I thought about sharing some dreams about our common home, our charismatic family... Read More
