Each year, the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales have been graced by the growth of our Salesian spirituality among the people in the ArtworkWashington metropolitan area, and the past year proved no different.  St. Francis de Sales in the Introduction to a Devout Life writes, “The spiritual life springs organically from the central core of the person and adapts itself to the unique life circumstances in which he or she finds himself or herself” (Introduction, III, 23).  As we continue the wellspring of Francis, inviting our brothers and sisters to share in this spirituality, we are amazed at the expansion of Live Jesus! Communities and of our contemporary Daughters and Sons of St. Francis de Sales. We hope you too have experienced this expansion of faith through your relationship with our merciful and loving God.

Live Jesus! 2018 will be held at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Vienna, VA, on Saturday, March 10, 2018.  Oblate Fathers Mark Hushen, OSFS, and Dave Kenehan, OSFS, will serve as keynote speakers.  Fr. Hushen is the Chief Mission and Legacy Officer of Ashley Addiction Treatment and has ministered for years helping countless women, men, and children heal and live in recovery.  Fr. Kenehan is a retired colonel in the United States Army and has dedicated his priestly ministry to serving as a chaplain to our nation’s military.  Indeed, they will both draw on their experience to breathe life into the Salesian spirit.
