Monthly Giving Programs

Most of us are not called to be missionaries in foreign lands.  But being a missionary from home requires sacrifice, prayer and a love for the poor - just like a foreign missionary.  When you contribute to our monthly giving programs you are a co-missionary with us.  Donations to these giving programs may be made monthly.

Mission Friendship Club

MF club

Oblate missionaries endure great hardships to provide food and shelter – and God’s love – to the poor.  As a Mission Friendship Club member you will stand with them as an “oblation,” a living offering in service to God’s people.  For your first donation of $5.00 or more you will  receive your own Oblate Cross, a Mission Friendship Club membership certificate and Oblates around the world will remember your special intentions in prayer every day.  You will also receive two mission publications throughout the year, the Oblate Mission Friendship Club News and Oblate World magazine.

For your first donation of $5.00 or more you will become a member of Mary’s Circle of Friends.  You will be remembered in daily Masses and prayers by the Oblates worldwide.  You will also be remembered at daily Mass at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois and at the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome.  In addition, you will receive Oblate World magazine three times a year to update you on the progress of our Oblate missions.

Shrine Advocates

When you send your first Shrine Advocate donation of $5.00 or more you will receive a Blue Pearl Snows Rosary, a Share the Healing and the Hope prayer book and a personalized Shrine Advocate enrollment certificate.  You will also begin receiving the quarterly Advocate News to give you an insider’s view of Shrine events and programs.  In addition you will receive Oblate World magazine to update you on Oblate ministries around the world.  The Oblates will also remember you in a special Mass at the Shrine on your birthday.  As your donation total grows you can receive additional devotional gifts from the Oblates for your generosity.
