I want to give your loved ones a special gift on their birthdays - THE GIFT OR PRAYER.

On their birthdays I will have them prayed for at two sacred places, the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome and the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois.

How do they receive this special gift of prayer? It's simple. Send your loved ones an Oblate Birthday card. Then send their names and birthdays to me. I will make sure they are lifted up in prayer on their special day.

This gift of prayer is being given to you because you are truly a friend of the Missionary Oblates. Yu prayers and support make you a partner with the Oblates as we bring healing and hope to poor and needy people around the world.

In China, Fr. David Uhlrich, O.M.I. makes sure that a birthday party is held every month for children with disabilities at a nearby orphanage. In Haiti, Fr. Fred Charpentier, O.M.I. shares birthdya blessings at a nursing home for people who otherwise would be living on the streets. And in the Tekakwitha indian Missions, Fr. Joe Hitpas, O.M.I. provides small birthday gifts to youngsters on the White Earth Reservation of northern Minnesota.

You are bringing birthday joy to people very day in our missions. And here is how you can bring birthday joy to your friends and family:
