We evangelize in every country of the world with special attention to those who do not know Christ. We also work on behalf of the unity of Christians. The different works that we do are education, catechism, medicine, sacristy and social works, Our Charism as Oblate sisters is to promote the kingdom of Christ in ourselves, in the world , to live the sacrament of Reconciliation and the Eucharist, we evangelize Christ to those who do not know the Lord .We let Christ be known and loved in every country in the world which is our Mission, Our Motto “Here am l send me calls us to be visible and be able to work in any countries in the word. The spirit of our Congregation is Christ Centered, Christ make us enter into his relation to the Father and to the holy spirit, We love Jesus as our Savior , love Mary as our Mother and love the Church as spouse of Jesus.
As Oblate sisters, we follow the rule of St Augustine, it’s also the way of our life, walking with the rule is walking with Christ Himself ( E. d’Alzon ) according to the rule , we as oblates consider a gift from the holy spirit, instruments of personal growth and community growth, Community life is essential to our lives we all search for what is the best by living , simplicity and frankness, we live a common life of sharing our goods, prayers and the service of our brothers and sisters , we also share the joys and troubles of our fellow sisters in our communities, with all that we live as Oblates, prayer is above all and the means to attain all that we need.
