Since May of last year (2019), a team of nine people have been organising the 6th International Forum for Oblates, which will take place from 9-11 October, 2020, in Paray-le-Monial, France. The theme of the forum will be: “Oblates of Saint John, let us live out our Charism!”
The team is composed of oblates, one brother and one sister from the priories in Boulogne-Billancourt, Montpellier, Murat, Orléans, Troussures and Semur-en-Brionnais (all in France). The members of the team assure us they are keeping the whole Family of Saint John in their prayers, knowing it has gone through some decisive moments over the past months. They remain united and strong in their hope that “all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” (Jn 1:3)
So that we might experience a time of fraternity and together rediscover the fatherhood of Saint John, we warmly invite all the members of the Family of Saint John to already put in their diaries the dates of the International Forum for Oblates, 9-11 October, 2020.
