GOD OUR FATHER, We thank You for the gift of faith You have given us in the Church through the Oblate missionaries who came to our shores almost a hundred years ago. As we celebrate our centenary, we pray that we may be faithful and authentic witnesses of this faith to others.

LORD JESUS CHRIST, grant that by imitating the love by which Your earthly father St. Joseph took care of You, may we continue the work of building up Your Kingdom in our families, communities, parishes, schools, seminaries, mission areas and among the youth through the spirit of humility, hard work, in union with You and by a life hidden in You.

O HOLY SPIRIT, enlighten and guide us as we face our future in total commitment to taking care of the interest of Jesus. Let our trust in Divine Providence be the anchor of our life. Through the intercession of Our Lady of Sorrows, with Saint Joseph her Most Chaste Spouse and Saint Joseph Marello, our Founder, may we always serve You devoutly and increase in Your love through Christ our Lord.
