Missions

News from our Baja Mission from Fr. Jesse Esqueda, OMI

In this video you will see some of the GREAT NEW PROGRAMS that we have at the mission. We now have a lot of young professionals in leadership roles in our parish. This is changing the way we do ministry. More people are getting involved and more leaders are being developed. Our Scholarship program started in 2017, since then 52 students have graduated from College. About 90% of our young adults are now in college.  We have our first medical doctor who graduated this year!!!

The Favelas Are My Kind of Place

As Superior General of the Missionary Oblates, Fr. Louis Lougen, O.M.I. works among the grandeur of Rome. His office is just a few blocks from the Vatican, a long way away from the 18 years he ministered in the favelas (shanty towns) of Brazil.
