Enhance Your Lent with Live Jesus! Retreat (April 2, 2022) - Join with the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales on Saturday, April 2, 2022, for Live Jesus! a morning of reflection, fellowship, and prayer based upon the humble and gentle spirituality of St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal.
“Healing Relationships…Let It Begin with Me,” is this year’s theme and invites attendees to reflect on the relationships in their lives. Fr. Tom Dailey, OSFS, STL, The John Cardinal Foley Chair of Homiletics & Social Communications and Professor of Theology at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary is the keynote speaker.
Live Jesus! will be held at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Glen Mills, Delaware County. The retreat runs from 8:45 AM to 12:00 PM, with a continental breakfast is available beginning at 8:00 AM. Register at www.oblates.org
The Oblates of St. Francis de Sales celebrate a double Salesian Jubilee Year (January 23, 2022 to January 24, 2023) marking the 400th anniversary of the death of St. Francis de Sales (1622) and the 450th anniversary of the birth of our secondary founder, St. Jane de Chantal (1572). Their friendship gave us what we fondly call "Salesian Spirituality." This jubilee allows for a renewal of The Salesian life. Oblate Superior General, Fr. Barry Strong, OSFS, highlights three pillars of this jubilee year: to increase knowledge and love of the two saints; to encourage imploring their intercession; and to imitate their virtues and devotion.

DeSales Weekly - Every Thursday, DeSales Weekly provides our subscribers with some fresh material to aid them in efforts to live Jesus, which is the motto of our patron, St. Francis de Sales. He sought to integrate the sacred and the secular to make the ordinary events of our lives extraordinary by bringing virtue, grace, and Jesus to all we do. Frequently, we may not be able to see the window through which the Spirit may enter a given moment or activity of our day. With reflections on a panoply of topics and experiences by the Oblates, as well as resources to help prepare for Sunday Mass, and other updates from the Oblate world, this weekly email offers a regular, concise resource to life the spirit and help it soar into the weekend.
