Dear Confreres, Friends and Visitors,
The Toledo-Detroit Province is one of nine Oblate provinces and mission regions worldwide. Sometimes called the “Western Province,” the T-D Province encompasses Ohio, Michigan, western New York, and California. Some of us work in other provinces and in mission territories.
The Province met a few years ago to reflect on our charism and mission. We thought the following statement captured our spirit and purpose:
As Oblates of the Toledo-Detroit Province, in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales, we commit ourselves to Christ who came not to be served but to serve and to give his life for others. Like Christ, with humility, trust, compassion and an effective love that thirsts for the Reign of God, we seek to discover and to fulfill the will of God as it presents itself in each moment. Gifted with an evangelizing spirit and sensitive to the needs and experiences of people in daily life, we embrace the grace of the ordinary in a spirit of humility and gentle strength.
Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest, prayers and support,Fr. Ken McKenna, OSFS Provincial
