Dear Friend,

For many children living in the United States, returning to school in the fall is not a welcomed event.  They would rather continue their summer vacation, playing with friends and enjoying a carefree lifestyle.  I’ll admit, I was one of those children.

Unfortunately, many poor children around the world do not have the opportunity to go to school.  That is because there is no school in their small, impoverished villages.  I am so proud that the Missionary Oblates have opened hundreds of schools around the world to give these children a place to receive an education.  Please consider making a donation in support of these vital ministries.

I also ask that you send me your prayer intentions so my fellow Oblates and I can remember your needs at Mass and in our prayers.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Please keep the least among us in your thoughts and prayers.

Fr. John Madigan, OMI

In Jesus Christ and Mary Immaculate,
