Welcome to oblatemissions.ie, the website of the Dublin-based Oblate Mission Development Office (MDO).
For more than 100 years the Anglo-Irish Oblate province sent missionaries out from here to countries in Asia, to Australia, South Africa, northern Canada, the United States and Brazil.
The days when young priests were sent from here to the ‘foreign missions’ may be over, but our links with the developing world are still very much alive. It is in this new context that the MDO was set up to ‘raise awareness of, interaction with, and funding for, Oblate missions worldwide’. MDO personnel are in daily contact with Oblates on the ground in developing countries, supporting their efforts to improve the lives of poor and vulnerable people. This website presents us with an ideal opportunity to show you the world of today’s Oblate missionaries, the communities they are serving, and what is being achieved through your generosity.
