Currently, the Oblate community in Aix is composed of five Oblates from five different countries: Belgium, the United States, Indonesia, France and Poland. They are permanent members of the Association of the Eugene de Mazenod International Centre (EMIC), a group which was founded in November of 2011, which has as its goal the dissemination of St. Eugene’s works, writings and thoughts, while animating and taking care of the historical space in which this religious family was born. In addition, the group is responsible for pastoral ministry in the Church of the Mission, and in the near future, may assist with youth ministry in the diocese.
The renovation was guided by Mr. Éric FERMENT, who was assisted by Br. Benoît DOSQUET, the treasurer of the community, and Fr. Marc DESSUREAULT, treasurer general.
