Running with Mary
Community and Communications
After climbing the mountain that led us to consider the Holy Trinity as a model for our community life, in this reflection we go back down to our daily lives, to our local communities, to the brethren with whom we share our lives, our work and our experiences. While at the table one day with some of my confreres, I asked them what I should write about in this issue of OMI Information, and since we were talking about the media and their impact on our lives, it was suggested that I take this theme: the communications media and our community life.
Thank you, Fr. Nino! – Welcome Fr. Shanil!
The vocation of the Oblate Communications Service is to help the Congregation, in faithfulness to the spirit of Saint Eugene de Mazenod, to share past and present experiences and to promote unity while respecting and valuing differences. In other words, the Service wants to make an important contribution to the communion between the General Administration and the whole Congregation and, at the same time, among the different Units, helping to create that family spirit so dear to the heart of the Founder.
