Have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.
John 16:33

In a few weeks Christians will attend Holy Week liturgies and then celebrate Jesus’ glorious Resurrection on Easter. Jesus instructed us to be Messengers of Peace. The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate strive to bring peace to troubled areas in 70 countries around the world.

With thanks to our co-missionaries, we can offer spiritual support and humanitarian aid to people with the greatest needs. Will you please consider an Easter gift to help continue the work of my brother Oblates in Ukraine, Haiti and other missions around the world?

In appreciation for your donation to help our missions, you may have a special candle lit for you or a loved one. For $25, an Easter Votive Candle will be lit at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. For $50, a Resurrection Taper Candle will be lit at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

I also selected two exquisite rosaries you can receive if you make a donation of $30 or more. The first is an Easter Ladder Rosary in gold with purple beads with a centerpiece featuring Mary, reminding us that Our Blessed Mother can be a ladder between heaven and earth. The second features lavender and silver pearl beads with white rose embellishments.

Finally, I would like to offer you the gift of prayer through a special Easter Novena prayed in three holy places:

  • The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois
  • Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and Tepeyac de San Antonio in Texas
  • The Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem

Click Here to submit your prayer intentions or include them on the forms to light a candle on the pages listed below. I ask that you continue to pray for my brother Oblates around the world and those served in our missions as well.
