Ministry in Parishes
In 1852 five Oblates arrived in Durban to found the Church in Natal. Today we continue to minister in the Archdiocese of Durban in a number of parishes, and also in the Diocese of Bulawayo, the Archdiocese of Cape Town and the Diocese of Keimos-Upington. Our focus is on the poor and marginalised wherever they are. But we are aware that spiritual poverty is found in all communities whatever their socio-economic status. So our ministerial presence includes all strata of society.
