Celebrating a new community

532-celebration_aix1On Thursday evening, February 22, I gave the obediences to all the members of the new Oblate community in Aix en Provence in a simple and very beautiful ceremony prepared by Father Saverio ZAMPA. The Oblates who make up the community at Centre International de Mazenod are: Father Joseph BOIS (originally from the Province of France); Brother BenoîtDOSQUET (also from the Province of France); Father Joseph LA BELLE (from the U.S. Province); and Father Saverio Zampa (from the Mediterranean Province). At this same time I installed Saverio as the new superior of the community. I am very grateful to the Provincials of these Provinces who have generously worked together with me to free up these men for Aix.
