“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer. 29:11)


The Centre missionnaire Oblat (CMO) announces today the temporary interruption of its services, starting May 1st, 2022, for an indefinite period.


This announcement follows several months of reflection to examine the dimensions of the organization and its various services in order to streamline its operations and adjust the resources and funds available to ongoing changes in mission.


To our donors, we express our immense gratitude. Your generous loyalty to this organization and its mission of international solidarity has never wavered.  We are committed to following up on all donations received or postmarked as of April 30, 2022, inclusively. Donations subsequent to this date will simply be returned to you.


Receipts for income tax purposes will be issued as usual.


To our beneficiaries, we thank you for your dedication and collaboration.  You are our hands and feet in the missionary field. For the time being and temporarily, the Centre missionnaire Oblat is no longer accepting new missionary projects. We encourage you to continue with your current projects and to submit your final reports to us so that we can maintain compliance with tax legislation. Once we resume operations, we will only accept applications for funding from Oblate units that have submitted all of their final reports.


We will continue to be available to support current projects.


These include projects that have already received funding and those that will be funded shortly based on applications submitted during the first quarter of this year.


We thank you for your understanding and prayerful support during this time of transition. We look forward to reconnecting with you when we resume our services.



The CMO has been supporting development projects world-wide since 1955. Without religious discrimination, the oblate community has been helping the marginalized poor, motivated by Christian principles of love and solidarity. The CMO’s strength comes from a wide network of partners in the field, who understand the culture and problems of the countries where they live and serve. This presence assures donors that their contributions are effectively helping the most disadvantaged.
The CMO supports projects touching many aspects of people’s lives, including nutrition and health. In addition, it supports a variety of church-initiated activities; donors can choose to finance either integrated or strictly non-denominational activities.
