On Monday August 1, 2016, six young men made their first religious vows to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. The Mass was held at the Church of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, IL.
Very Rev. William Antone, OMI, U.S. Provincial, presided at the Mass along with Oblate formators, Fathers Tom Horan, Jack Lau and Rudy Nowakowski.
Friends and family, along with many local Oblates attended the Mass and enjoyed a celebratory luncheon with the newly-professed Oblates.
