A lot has been happening in the Oblate Youth Office with preparations for NOYE and a few other exciting projects for next year under way! We’ve also had some pretty awesome news!!!
In September, we were informed that Fr. Christian Fini has been appointed as Provincial of the Oblates here in Australia. This is exciting news for the province and for OYA. We wish Fini the best of luck in his new appointment.
