Every Wednesday during the Lenten Season, the Mazenodians meet in the Oblate House of Aix for sharing around the Word of God in groups. Also, they bring communion to the elderly or the sick in their home.
The Mazenodians want to live the oblate spirituality and participate in their mission by following the example of Saint Eugene de Mazenod.
In 1807, during the Good Friday service, overwhelmed by the cross of Christ, Saint Eugene de Mazenod discovered God as God of Love. By this moment he is always with God in a deep intimacy of every moment. The abstract and distant God has become for him a person, a loving and loved Father. He acknowledged that everything comes from him, free and without merit. After this experience, Saint Eugene see Christ as his friend, a friend who is always in his side, a tender but also demanding friend.
