St-eugene de MazenodTwo hundred years ago, on the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle, Saint Eugene de Mazenod and a small group of companions formed a society which became the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. To mark this anniversary, the Most Reverend Douglas Crosby, O.M.I., Bishop of Hamilton and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, has sent a letter to the Superior General of Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Father Louis Lougen, O.M.I.
