Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculates - North America

North America

United States: The Oblates’ work in the United States began over 150 years ago.  One of their earliest missions was in Texas in the 1840s.  These Oblates were commonly referred to as the “Cavalry of Christ” as they rode on horseback through the vast Rio Grande region proclaiming the Gospel.  The Oblates’ presence in the in United States grew quickly.

Mexico: The Missionary Oblates have been ministering in northern Mexico since 1971.  The border mission is complex both culturally and socially, and is truly a work among the poor and abandoned.  The Oblates in this region, called La Morita, work tirelessly for the people of their communities.
