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. We seek out those who cry out for salvation in Japan, wherever they are. We conceive this vision to be done in community, in communion with God, with our brother Oblates, Church and Society.
We shall be ministering to: The migrants, The youth, Social problems and Advocacy.
<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
<from Your Share of the Prophets>
Prophets are necessary when wills are weak. Prophets are necessary when human reason is blinded. Prophets are necessary when the Word of God is obscured by sin, human weakness…. The prophet is the one who is sent to actualize the definitive Word of God, the definitive revelation, what God is revealing to me about his will for me, right now.
