The Oblates to the Blessed Trinity is a contemplative/active congregation of diocesan right, which follows the charism and spirituality of the Servant of God, Mother Margherita Diomira Crispi. To be an Oblate means to offer oneself totally as a victim for the salvation of mankind. The Oblates offer themselves as a holocaust to the Blessed Trinity through a life of adoration, reparation and apostolic works, and through the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience.
Their special charism is accented in the motto “Deus Caritas” which means “God is love.” The sisters make every effort to live the Trinitarian Love that unites the three Persons of the Blessed Trinity. In keeping with their charism of love, the Oblates find in the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament the perfect moment for an intimate encounter with Jesus; therefore, each sister has a daily hour of adoration. The prayer life of the sisters includes daily participation in the Holy Mass, Eucharistic adoration, Liturgy of the Hours, the rosary, spiritual reading, and meditation.
The apostolic spirit of the members of the congregation flows from the love of God. The sisters use their talents to spread the Good News through education, catechesis, pastoral ministry, Hispanic apostolate, and care of the poor and elderly.
