As Jesus’ Mission was to bring hope to the poor and since the OMI charism is to serve the most abandoned, we in Japan also want to walk in that direction.

<Three Goals of Oblate Ministry with Young People>
In becoming Human we seek to foster the psychological, intellectual, physical and spiritual growth of each young person; helping them to recognize their dignity and the dignity of others.
In becoming Christianswe seek to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
In becoming Saints we seek to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the Oblate charism, fully human and fully alive, in our world today

But she does not call them forth suddenly, all at once, nor in all times and places. The good man is like a tree planted by the water-side that will bring forth its fruit in due season, because when a soul is watered with charity, it brings forth good works seasonably and with discretion.”
— St. Francis de Sales
