Motto: Charitas Christi Urget Nos!
Charism: Meeting Jesus in the Poor
Mission Statement: One heart with three arrows which are the three loves of the Apostolate: the poor, the rich and the priests.. “it is necessary for the oblates to be holy, perfumed especially with that great virtue which is the soul of the Apostolate : the Christian Charity; the love of God and Neighbours; Solidly based on works and not on desire, love which treats the neighbour as oneself, I would say, more than oneself”
Purpose: The Oblates are Eucharistic persons called to make themselves servant of the poor
