THE FOUNDING VISION TODAY: THE KUSENBERGER CHAIR OF OBLATE STUDIES

 

This week I will be in Rome for an exciting event which will take place on Saturday 21 January at our General House. Deacon Robert and Mrs. Ruth Kusenberger, both Honorary Oblates, have generously endowed a Chair of Oblate Studies, at the service of the whole Mazenodian Family around the world, and to be based at Oblate School of Theology.

It is a practical and ongoing step to conclude our bicentenary celebrations and to lead us into the third century of our Oblate missionary existence. The Chair is the first of its kind and is dedicated to the study and dissemination of the history, charism, spirituality and mission of the Missionary Oblates through teaching and research, academic and enrichment programs, an annual Kusenberger lecture, and cooperation with the other Institutes of higher learning –  at the service of the Oblate General Administration and all connected with the charism of Saint Eugene de Mazenod throughout the world.

More details to follow…

One Response to THE FOUNDING VISION TODAY: THE KUSENBERGER CHAIR OF OBLATE STUDIES

  1. Eleanor Rabnett, Oblate Associate says:

    Congratulations on this next step in Oblate history. Am looking forward to hearing more about it and seeing how we can access it and take advantage of it. What a wonderful opportunity for all members of this Mazenodian, dare I say Oblate family. It is a wonderful time to be alive, it is an exciting time to be alive. The face of the Oblate congregation is changing subtly all around the world – it is not dying but rather growing in new ways. Alleluia Frank.
