Summer Session for Scholastics

Summer Session for Oblate Scholastics is neither a retreat nor a preparatory session for Perpetual Oblation. The principal aim of the Session is simply to allow the participants to live in the cradle of the Congregation, to make a spiritual experience that should help make concrete steps in their formation as missionaries. The Session takes place within the frame of a lived international experience which allows an exchange around issues concerning the Oblate Charism, Community, Stewardship of resources, and other aspects of missionary life.

The next Summer Session for Scholastics will take place in Aix from 08 – 26 July, 2015. As participants, we are expecting Scholastics from Obra in Poland, San Antonio in the United States, Vermicino and International Scholasticate in Italy. Among the main themes of the Session is: Vocational Discernment, the experience of the cross lived by Saint Eugene de Mazenod, Oblation, Community and the place of Mary in the life of the Oblates.
