Passionist Oblates
in Kentucky add to the family!
'Act of Oblation'

See:  'Passionist Oblate Family Expands!'


Passionist Oblates gather for "family photo" with St. Joseph Monastery Superior, Mother Catherine Marie,  after the admission ceremony.

   On the evening of Feb. 4, 2003 we received 28 new members into the Oblate Formation program, bringing the total number to 46.  The group had just completed a year of Inquiry, and now are ready to move into the formation program preparing for the Oblate commitment. 

   The admission ceremony took place during Evening Prayer and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.  At the end,  all lit their candles from a Christ candle burning before an image of our founder, St. Paul of the Cross.  Then while holding lighted candles we sang “May the Passion of Our Lord  Jesus Christ be  ever in our hearts!”  It was a moving witness to the work of the Holy Spirit, stirring up in the hearts of so many a desire to participate in the Passionist charism.



New Holy Oblates on Retreat!

May the new life flowing from the cross of Jesus richly bless each of us in the

 Family of the Passion!

the awesome gift continues....Alleluia!
