A celebration marking 25 years of partnership with the poor in Kenya by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate will be held once measures related to COVID-19 are lifted.

A presentation with two of the founding team members of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate who established a new mission in Kenya in 1995 – Fr. Bill Stang, OMI and Fr. Ken Forster, OMI – was originally planned for March 31 has been postponed

The Oblates and Canadian supporters have empowered the Kenya people over the past 25 years through the many projects that have been funded.

Opportunities continue for partnering with the Oblates to explore how we can continue to improve the lives of our brothers and sisters; a funding partnership that includes the direction and commitment of the poor themselves.

Let us share the Oblate Spirit!
