Day of Consecrated Life

Approved on the 9th of September 2001 as a religious Congregation by Diocesan Law, the sisters Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate were established in Madrid in 1997 with the wish to live the same life as the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.

It is a missionary Congregation of which the first service in Church is to announce Christ to the disinherited. Born in Church and for the Church, they want like Saint Eugene de Mazenod, to be heedful to the most urgent needs and respond to his call in the communion, with speed, boldness and creativity.

Today there are 19 sisters and 3 candidates of 5 nationalities: 10 from Spain, 4 from Germany, 5 from Poland, 2 from the Ukraine and 1 from Peru. They have lived, since the beginning, in poverty and simplicity giving to their Congregation an international and multicultural aspect.
