Our Congregation

Founded by Venerable Pio Bruno Lanteri, the Oblates of the Virgin Mary are a Congregation of priests and brothers who carry out the spirit and charism of their founder through the apostolates of directing the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, supporting clergy formation, propagating the truth through the mass media, proclaiming the Gospel in the foreign missions, and supporting lay formation.

Essential parts of Oblate spirituality include: a living sense of God’s Mercy, a filial devotion to Mary, fidelity to the Church, Ignatian spirituality, and a strong zeal for souls in today’s world.

Currently, the Oblates of the Virgin Mary minister in Italy, Nigeria, France, Austria, England, the USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, and the Philippines. Clicking on the country name on the home page will take you to much more information about OMV activities in that particular country.
