We are the Oblates of St. Joseph, priests and brothers dedicated to serving Jesus in imitation of St. Joseph.
Like our patron and model St. Joseph, we strive to live humble, hidden lives, and to do even our ordinary tasks in an extraordinary way. As a religious congregation founded in 1878 by St. Joseph Marello, we consecrate our lives to God through vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. We live these vows in community as a family modeled after the Holy Family of Nazareth, and we embrace total fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

"He who is worried and full of anxiety in his work does an offense to God and does not say the Our Father from the heart. Let us accept purely and simply whatever God sends us, without being concerned or sad." - St. Joseph Marello
