A new program for the formation of Oblate novices was recently begun after many months of preparation. The package of 12 lessons was assembled largely by Oblates Deborah Johnston and Mary Ann Kaufman. The program is available currently for those who have been invested on or after July 10, 2016, although it may be extended to others in the future. The lessons and responses to questions can be conveyed by E-mail or U.S. mail. Fr. Donald is grateful to Mary Ann and Deborah for preparing and launching this long-awaited program.
