The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate serve the poor in the U. S. and nearly 70 countries throughout the world. These are just a few of the ways your gifts support our ministries.
Your gifts support retired Missionary Oblate priests and brothers:
- $25 can supply personal hygiene items for one month.
- $50 can provide transportation needs for one month.
- $100 can cover prescriptions not paid by insurance for one month.
- $200 can cover the cost of supplemental medical insurance for one month.

Your gifts also help the poor people of Zambia:
- $50 can build a home. These simple shelters are built with the following materials: $24 for four bags of cement, $6 for poles, $6 for grass, $6 for mud and $8 for labor.
- $20 allows a young woman to live for a year in a dormitory built by the Oblates so she can attend high school. High schools do not exist in many small Zambian towns, so students have to move to larger cities to continue their education.
- $1 can provide a month’s supply of water.
