GENERAL ADMINISTRATIONBeatification date is set
The Postulator General informs the Congregation that the beatification of the 22 Oblate Martyrs of the Scholasticate Community of Pozuelo (Madrid) has already been established by both the Congregation for the Causes of Saints and the Cardinal Archbishop of Madrid. The celebration will take place in the Cathedral of Madrid on Saturday, December 17, 2011.
There are still several months ahead until the event. As time goes by, more details will be communicated. Oblates interested in participating should reserve this date in their calendar.
The cost for this celebration is significant and it all falls under the responsibility of the Spanish Province, which has already assumed considerable expenses in hosting 1,300 Oblate Youth for World Youth Day. The Spanish Province is very grateful to those Oblate Units that have already sent their donation. If other Units wish to collaborate, please contact with the Spanish Provincial Bursar or the Postulator General in Rome.
